Iga Swiatek response to clay court question after sweeping Rome Open

Sunday, 19 May 2024 at 11:10
World number one Iga Swiatek was unimpressed by a journalist's question during the press talk after her recent triumph at the Rome Open. The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the best players currently playing in the women’s singles category. Swiatek recently participated in the Rome Open, where she lifted the title after beating world number two Aryna Sabalenka with a score of 6-2, 6-3.
After the match, a reporter asked her why she could not replicate her clay court performances on other courts. That did not go well with the Warsaw-born, who responded by saying, "You think the surfaces are the same?" she said during her post-match press conference. Have you played on each of these surfaces? Have you played on each of these surfaces you're talking about? Because they're different. Because the surfaces are different.”
After that result, Swiatek will again start the upcoming French Open as a strong favourite. The reigning world number has now won back-to-back WTA 1000 events in the build-up to the year's second Grand Slam. Before winning the Rome Open, Swiatek also lifted the Madrid Open by beating the same opponent in the final. Swiatek has also won two back-to-back titles at the Roland Garros. She won last year by beating Karolina Muchova in the final with the score of 6-2, 5-7, 6-4.
