"If you were a nicer human, you would actually have empathy for someone": Stubbs defends Swiatek amid United Cup crying criticism

Rennae Stubbs defended Iga Swiatek against some harsh comments by a fan on social media who thought Swiatek getting humbled by Pegula was a good thing.

Swiatek was crying when she exited the court after her loss to Jessica Pegula at the United Cup and after the match, the Polish player explained that she felt helpless on the court. A fan shared some harsh words for her on social media which prompted former player Rennae Stubbs to defend her.

The fan wrote:

"Iga is a crybaby she thinks she is unbeatable and got her a** kicked..nothing wrong with being humbled once in a while."

Stubbs replied:

"Todd. I’m going to help U here. Iga & Jess frankly are two of THE nicest women on tour. If Iga cried it’s because she feels like she let her team down or whatever the reason, it’s ok. But to be so aggressive towards Iga when u don’t know her personally is incredible to me."
