Former world number one Andy Roddick believes Poland’s Iga Swiatek is ‘on her way’ to becoming one of the best players of all time. The 22-year-old is already regarded as one of the best players currently playing in women’s singles category along with Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka.
Roddick was recently quoted in a report where he heaped praise on the women’s current world number one and believes that she is well on her way to achieving greatness. "Swiatek, four Majors, nine WTA 1000 titles already, 20 total titles,” he said. “You could chop her resume into a third and I think she would still have it. 100, some odd weeks at No. 1 since Ash Barty retired and handed the No. 1 ranking over to her. Swiatek is on her way to becoming one of the best players of all time.”
Swiatek is having a fabulous season as she has already won three WTA titles, including two WTA 1000 Masters. Her first major triumph came while playing in Qatar where she lifted the title after beating Elena Rybakina in the final with a score of 7-6, 6-2. She then went on to win the WTA 1000 event the Indian Wells by beating Greece’s Maria Sakkari in the final with a score of 6-4, 6-0. Recently, Swiatek lifted the Madrid Open after beating Sabalenka in the final with a score of 7-5, 4-6, 7-6.
