Iga Swiatek lost number one just less than a month ago with her defeat against Jelena Ostapenko at the 2023 US Open. Now, the Pole faces from a different point the different events that await her on the calendar between now and the end of the season.
With the absence of Aryna Sabalenka at the WTA 1000 in Tokyo 2023, it is Iga Swiatek who acts as the first seed, something to which the Pole is already more than accustomed. Her first rival in the Japanese tournament will be the local player Mai Hontama, number 127 in the world, in a match in which Iga arrives as her clear favorite. A couple of days before her premiere in Tokyo, Swiatek answered questions from some of her fans at an event organized by the tournament. Among the different questions she has, the one that stands out is when she will be able to have all the Grand Slams in her collection.
When will he win the four Grand Slams?
“I don’t think I can answer this question specifically. As soon as possible? Well, I’m sure I need a couple more years to learn how to play well on grass, so I’m not in a hurry. I’m 22 years old, so I still have a lot of time left, more than 10 years. I do everything in my power to win all the tournaments I play in, but I don’t rush because I have already won four Grand Slams,” said Iga Swiatek, who already has three Roland Garros and a US Open.
“What I have achieved since 2020 is crazy, sometimes it is difficult for me to understand how everything has happened. When I was younger I didn’t know that all that was going to be possible for me, so I really take it easy,” Iga explained to her Japanese fans before the start of the WTA Tokyo 2023.
