Iga Świątek was very lucky.  Good draw for the tournament in Rome

Iga Świątek met her rivals in the WTA 1000 Rome tournament. After the triumph in Madrid, luck smiled on the Pole. He will only start playing seriously in the quarterfinals. Magda Linette and Magdalena Fręch were more unlucky.

Last weekend, Iga Świątek won her first WTA 1000 title in Madrid. The first racket in the world defeated Aryna Sabalenka 7:5, 4:6, 7:6 after a phenomenal fight. When the emotions subsided, the Pole spoke about this achievement. “What a match it was… I don't think I need to say more. Proud and happy, I fly to Rome. See you!” – she wrote.

Iga Świątek is preparing for Internazionali d'Italia

Iga Świątek did not celebrate for a long time, because the next week she was in Rome, where she will take part in the Internazionali d'Italia tournament. Let us remember that last year the Pole was eliminated in the quarterfinals against Jelena Rybakina. The Raszynia player retired in the third set due to an injury. The tournament will start on Tuesday, April 7, and the drawing took place the day before – on Monday.

The first racket in the world received a free ticket in the first round, so the competition will start from the next phase of this match, which is scheduled for May 10. In this phase of the WTA 1000 tournament in Rome, Iga Świątek will face the qualifier or Caroline Dolehide.

In fact, Iga Świątek's first serious game awaits her in the quarterfinals of Internazionali d'Italia, where she may face Marketa Vondrousova, Beatriz Haddad Maia, who has recently caused her a lot of problems, or Madison Keys.

This year, Iga Świątek will be able to meet Jelena Rybakina, her conqueror from last year, only in the final. Just like with Aryna Sabalenka – her rival for the title of the best tennis player in the world.

As for other Polish representatives, we will see Magda Linette and Magdalena Fręch in this tournament. Both will start the competition from the first round. The Poznań native will face Lin Zhu, and if she wins, she will face Wiktoria Azarenka.
