Iga Swiatek says that she doesn’t spend much time on social media while competing, but she did respond very honestly to people who suggested that she is only winning because her opponents are so weak. Swiatek created history in Doha by becoming the player to lose the fewest games (5) while winning a championship.

Following winning in Doha, Swiatek traveled to Dubai, where she set a WTA 1000 record for fewest games lost (9) while advancing to the final. Other people, however, are not really impressed by Swiatek’s domination and maintain that Swiatek is only this good because the WTA Tour makes life simple for her.

Swiatek addressed it after defeating Cori Gauff in the Dubai semifinal.

Swiatek: I realize this is never an easy task.

“I don’t really hear that much because I try to avoid social media as much as possible while competing in tournaments.

I’m publishing my work. It’s not like I’m reading a lot. Sincerity be damned, I don’t mind if they comment if it seems simple or not. It’s never simple, I’m aware of that. If anyone wins also with a wonderful score, it’s not like. You will never fully understand why or what occurred in tennis because it is such a convoluted sport.

I believe that if you work hard and put your all into every game, your chances will present themselves. I’m therefore quite happy that I can play tennis at a high level right now, but I’m also really prepared for every match, focused, and driven.

If I weren’t, I imagine my score would simply be different. Work is what it is, so, yeah “Sportskeeda quotes Swiatek as saying. In the meanwhile, Swiatek improved after a poor 2023 season debut. Swiatek took some time to regroup after losing the Australian Open, won in Doha, and then lost to Barbora Krejcikova in the Dubai final. Swiatek’s next stop will be Indian Wells, where she will attempt to defend her championship.
