Iga Swiatek, the current world number 1, has been in the best form of her life. She has won four consecutive tournaments. She withdrew from the ongoing Madrid Open to nurse her shoulder and prepare for upcoming events, including the French Open, the only Grand Slam she has won till now. With Swiatek’s current form, she is a favorite to win it a second time this year.
She is looking league apart from the competition, as she has obliterated all of her opponents in these past months. There has always been some excitement surrounding Swiatek and her family. It is well known that her father, Tomasz Swiatek, was an Olympic rower. He competed in the men’s quadruple sculls event at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. But, there hasn’t been much information about Iga’s sister. So, here it is!
Iga Swiatek has a sister, and it’s common knowledge. She was there with her to support Iga during her French Open victory. Her sister, Agata Swiatek, is a dentistry student at the Medical University of Lublin. Iga’s father, Tomasz, tried to get both of her daughters into sports. He started by introducing Agata to tennis while Iga was meant to be a swimmer
Agata didn’t even fully grow into the junior circuit, and after briefly competing in the ITF Junior Circuit in 2013 when she was 15, she left tennis due to injuries. That’s when Iga stepped in. She took the sport that her sister didn’t find her calling in, and she excelled in it. Iga started because she wanted to beat her sister on the court but stayed on to beat the best players in the world.
Iga Swiatek will be eyeing to return at the Roland-Garros with the same form she has displayed these past few months.
