Swiatek credits Lego and confidence for Adelaide title

Iga Swiatek won her 2nd career title at the Adelaide International and after the triumph, she joined the WTA Podcast to discuss it.

Speaking on the WTA podcast the Adelaide Champion spoke about many things that include her routines, her confidence, her love for math and rules and legos. We bring you some of the more interesting things she said. The first question was about the title run and what worked to which she responded:

"Just basically, as usual. Keeping my routines and treating every match and every point actually the same way, just focusing on the details, I would say that's kind of the key to every tournament that I play well."

It was her first major result on hard courts which is not her strongest court (clay) which Swiatek called interesting. She considers herself a versatile player which she explained:

"I don't think the surface really has a huge impact. When I'm feeling good physically and mentally, I can win anywhere."

She also briefly commented on Bencic calling her game very unique and unpredictable which she described as intuition. She said:

"I would say that it's all about intuition because I remember that I was also unpredictable when I was younger on the court. My intuition is actually to be unpredictable, sometimes also to myself."

As a young kid she used to do math before matches to calm her nerves and today she uses Legos. She explained that:

"Daria (sports psychologist) had this idea to do some models and Legos, and I think it works perfectly for my mind because I'm this kind of person who just likes to think logically and construct."
