Iga Świątek's round anniversary.  An impressive achievement for the Polish leader of the WTA ranking

The year 2024 has just begun, and Iga Świątek is already breaking new records. This time we are talking about the role of the leader of the WTA world ranking. The Pole, as number one, has just won for the hundredth time in her career. An impressive achievement for a 22-year-old tennis player.

It is worth recalling that Iga Świątek became the leader of the WTA ranking for the first time on April 4, 2022. Initially, it was an issue related to the end of the career of the previous “number one”, Australian Ashleigh Barty. However, the Pole quickly proved that the number 1 next to her name is not a coincidence. Świątek dominated her competitors and, apart from a two-month break in the fall of this year, she was unable to be overtaken at the forefront of the tennis world. What’s more, she regained the title of the best, overtaking Aryna Sabalenka.

100 victories of Iga Świątek as the leader of the WTA ranking

Currently, the four-time winner of Grand Slam tournaments plays for the Polish national team during the United Cup. The tournament in Australia is going according to the wishes of the Pole and the national team, and Świątek herself is collecting further victories. The Polish woman has just celebrated her 100th anniversary as number 1 in the world.

This is an impressive achievement considering that Świątek is only 22 years old. If the Pole maintains this pace of winning, she may dominate women’s tennis for years to come. It is valuable that at the end of both 2022 and 2023, the Pole was the leader of the WTA ranking. This shows the scale of the Raszynian’s strength.

Iga Świątek and all her championship titles

The Pole has won seventeen tournaments in her career so far. Świątek won four Grand Slams, three times at Roland Garros (2020, 2022 and 2023) and once at the US Open (2022). To this should be added the prestigious triumph in the WTA Finals (2023).

In addition, wins in WTA 1000 tournaments in: Rome (2021, 2022), Doha (2022), Indian Wells (2022), Miami (2022) and Beijing (2023). The list also includes WTA 500 matches: Adelaide (2021), Stuttgart (2022 and 2023), San Diego (2022) and Doha (2023). Plus a Polish accent, WTA 250 in Warsaw (2023).
