Iga Swiatek, the current WTA World No.1, helped Poland qualify for the Billie Jean King finals where they will face Czech Republic and USA in the group stage.
However the Polish international has a dilemma on her hands, she will be forced to make a choice of either playing in the WTA finals or in the Billie Jean King finals.
This is because the WTA finals will finish on November the 7th just one day before the Billie Jean King finals gets underway.
Tomasz Swiatek (Iga's father) expressed his frustration in an interview with Interia Sport.
"Extremely unfortunate deal. And yet we have a very difficult group for that in the BJK Cup. The dates of both events are missed. There is a clash between the ITF (organizer of BJK Cup Finals) and WTA (organizer of WTA Finals). Instead of taking care of the development of women's tennis, go in one direction, they cannot communicate,"
"This is the second such conflict situation after Wimbledon, in which the organizers of the tournament and the WTA were unable to agree on the exclusion of athletes from Russia and Belarus. I really don't like what happened with the overlapping of the Masters finals and the Billie Jean King Cup finals," he added.
