"I don't think she's great for Women's Tennis": Bold call from Arias surrounding Swiatek, wants to see more personality from World No.1

Former world number five America’s Jimmy Arias believes that current women’s world number Iga Swiatek’s lack of ‘personality’ is not good for the sport.

The 22-year-old is the leading player in the women’s singles category, despite being still very young.

Arias was quoted in a report where he stated that he would like to see more personality from Swiatek.

"From my standpoint, I don't think she's been great for women's tennis,” he said. “Because she wears her hat so low that you can't even see her face or her eyes during a match, so you don't get a connection as much as you could. So, I don't mind her getting angry in some ways, but I want to see her personality."

Swiatek is coming on the back of a rather disappointing time in Wimbledon 2023 where she was knocked out in the quarterfinals by Ukraine’s tennis star Elina Svitolina with a score of 7-5, 6-2, 6-2.

Despite that result, Swiatek will be slightly pleased with her performance in the third Grand Slam of the year as it was her best outing in London.

The Warsaw-born is currently taking part in a tournament in her home town where she is currently facing Belgium’s Yanina Wickmayer for a spot in the final.
