Iga Swiatek’s father asked about Pole’s relationship with Jelena Ostapenko

Tomasz Swiatek says he has never directly asked Iga Swiatek about her relationship with Jelena Ostapenko but added he is certain that his daughter and the Belarusian share mutual respect for each other. Swiatek, 22, and 25-year-old Sabalenka have formed one of the biggest rivalries in today’s women’s tennis.

Swiatek has four Grand Slams and she is ranked at No 1 in the world, while Sabalenka captured her first Grand Slam title at this year’s Australian Open and she has since been ranked at No 2. Swiatek and Sabalenka have played against each other eight times, with the Pole leading their head-to-head 5-3.”We never talked about it, but I’m sure they respect each other as players.

It’s also not like all these girls are sitting together in the locker room and socializing there. Rather, they just go in to change before and after the game or training, just for a while, and go back to work with their teamSwiatek, who turned 22 in late May, is already a four-time Grand Slam champion and she hasbeen ranked at No 1 since 2022 April.


biggest reasons behind Swiatek’s early success is her competitive level. According to her father, the Pole has always been like that. “She was always a kid who wanted to compete. First with her older sister, then with rivals on the court.

As a ten-year-old, she said: ‘Let’s go to a tournament for older girls, because we’ve already beaten everyone here. She was always looking for new challenges, that’s what she had left. I remember her winning junior Wimbledon in 2018.
