Iga Swiatek says she is not concerned about Aryna Sabalenka aiming to replace her at the top spot as the Pole underlined that she is only focused on herself and her game. Sabalenka, 24, became a Grand Slam champion after winning this year’s Australian Open
“I’m not really looking for what other players are doing. I know there’s also Ons, many players, that are kind of capable of winning tournaments, getting more and more points. For sure, Aryna is in a nice position after Australian Open.
I’m really just focusing on myself. I don’t care really,” Swiatek said, per Tennis Majors.
Swiatek on her game
Last week, Swiatek won Doha with just five games dropped. This week, Swiatek started her Dubai run with a 6-1 6-1 win over Leylah Fernandez before also destroying Liudmila Samsonova 6-1 6-0.
Even though Swiatek has been playing the lights out recently, she still says she has “many things to improve.” “I feel I have many things to improve on court. Sometimes it’s not going to be visible by results or the way I play.
I think I can have more options on court. these are my goals,” Swiatek said. Swiatek’s comment left reporters stunned and the Pole was asked what she exactly meant by saying that she had many things to improve. “They’re not really based on results.
It’s more about how I want to approach the tournaments mentally, my attitude, and developing as a player because I feel I have many things to improve on court. Sometimes it’s not going to be visible by results or the way I play. I think I can have more options on court. These are my goals,” Swiatek explained
