"I'm going to lose a match, it's pretty normal" - Swiatek after consecutive win number 30

Iga Swiatek's winning streak continued Thursday in the second round of the French Open with a 6-0, 6-2 victory over American Alison Riske.

People are slowly running out of superlatives to use for the play of Iga Swiatek and it's a shame because what she's been doing in these 30 matches has been spectacular. After yet another dominating win Swiatek said:

"I'm going to reach a point where I'm going to lose a match, and it's pretty normal. I have been losing matches in tennis for a long time."

She continued:

"For sure, the things we are doing right now are pretty extraordinary, but I know in tennis that only one person wins at the end. I will be okay with that. For sure, it's not fun to lose, but I think it wouldn't be different than any other loss that I had in my career."

It's a healthy perspective from Swiatek to hold as she's been showered with many legendary comparisons and quotes. For her, it's about keeping perspective on the next match and the next match comes today against Kovinic.
