Iga Swiatek is regarded highly by former world No. 1 Jimmy Connors, who acknowledges that he would like to meet the three-time Grand Slam champion. Former eight-time Grand Slam champion Connors thinks Swiatek, 21, has already shown she is capable of absorbing adversity and triumphing.

Swiatek returned to competition during the recent Middle East as she advanced all the way in Doha and came in second in Dubai after a poor Australian Open. “It seems to me that there are some players who, when unfortunate events take place, they have what it takes to overcome them and figure out why they occurred.

I’d love to meet her. She sounds amazing, and I’d love to have her on the podcast. It would be wonderful, “According to Sportskeeda, Connors stated on the Advantage Connors podcast.

Connors and Barbora Krejcikova hold Swiatek in the highest regard.

On Saturday, Krejcikova, a former world No. 2, stopped Swiatek from winning consecutive championships in Doha and Dubai.

Krejcikova, the 2021 French Open champion, beat top-seeded Swiatek in the Dubai final by winning 6-4, 6-2. After the match, Krejcikova referred to Swiatek as “a huge inspiration” and said that everyone can learn something from the Pole.

“That has a significant impact. I had a terrific week; I was getting better with each game, and tonight I gave it my all. Iga has my utmost regard; she is a great inspiration to me and daily motivation. It was a fantastic final, and I’m pleased with the outcome “Regarding Swiatek, Krejcikova stated.

Swiatek is now concentrating on Indian Wells. Swiatek won titles in Indian Wells and Miami while going undefeated at the Sunshine Double the previous year. On March 8, the Indian Wells competition will begin, and it remains to be seen if Swiatek will be able to defend her championship there.
