According to Przegld Sportowy, Iga Swiatek’s charity event for Ukraine brought in 2.5 million PLN (€527,000).
Iga Swiatek and Friends for Ukraine was a charity event that Swiatek hosted throughout the weekend.
Swiatek competed against Agnieszka Radwanska, a Polish tennis star, and the 2012 Wimbledon runner-up defeated the No. 1 player in the world. Radwanska and Sergiy Stakhovsky lost against Swiatek and Martyn Pavelski in the only other mixed doubles match that was played.
“It’s incredible. On Saturday in Krakow, I learned just how effective sports are at bringing people together and how much we can do when we utilize them responsibly. I appreciate the help. We appreciate your presence, Agnieszka, Sergiy, Martyn, Andriy, and Elina “Sportskeeda quotes Swiatek as saying.
Ukraine remains in Swiatek’s thoughts.
Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, Swiatek has backed Ukraine, thus the fact that certain players appear to have forgotten about Ukraine displeases her. “I observed a decline in the memory of the conflict.
For two or three games, many players removed the ribbons they had been wearing since February. It’s a little erratic in my opinion. I kept and will keep this ribbon with me “said Swiatek. Swiatek remained in Poland after the charity event; he only moved to a different city.
Swiatek will make his debut at the Poland Open this week in Warsaw. Swiatek faces Magdalena French in the opening round of the Warsaw tournament. “I want to perform in Warsaw for as long as I can. Playing at home makes this tournament extra special for me.
I’m aware that some people could anticipate me beginning a new winning streak, but all I want is to enjoy myself while playing tennis “said Swiatek. At Wimbledon, Swiatek’s streak of 37 victories in a row came to a stop. The Pole is now hoping to continue his winning ways in Warsaw.
