Iga Swiatek Talks About Her Roots

Iga Świątek, the world’s number one tennis player, shares her journey to success in the YouTube video “On | Iga Świątek: Beyond Number One | Dream Together.” Growing up, she felt it was an impossible feat to become a successful tennis player from Poland, as there was only one before her, Agnieszka Radwańska. Despite her unconventional grip and asymmetrical playing style, Świątek credits her unique approach, including a lot of spin on her forehand and a flat backhand, for her success.

However, she experienced a surprising defeat at the Australian Open and used it as an opportunity to learn and grow. Świątek also discusses the challenges of being a public figure and the pressure that comes with social media scrutiny. She emphasizes the importance of understanding that athletes are human beings and acknowledges the role of luck and support in her success. Throughout the interview, Świątek inspires viewers to dream and expresses her gratitude for her team and the younger generation.
