Swiatek endorsed by Evert to clinch more French Open women's singles titles

Saturday, 25 May 2024 at 11:00
Former world number one Chris Evert believes Poland’s Iga Swiatek will surpass her record of winning the most French Open titles in the women’s singles category. The second Grand Slam of the year will be organised from May 26 to June 09 in the capital city of France, where players from all over the world will participate to showcase their talent.
Evert, who is the most successful player in the competition in the women’s singles category, having won the title as many as seven times, was recently quoted in a report where she backed the reigning world number Swiatek, who has already won the competition already three times, to surpass her record.
"Absolutely [Swiatek will surpass my record]," said Evert. "Iga is a player on a mission. She's more focused. She doesn't get upset at all when she's losing. She just has all the ingredients to be a champion. She really does. She checks all the boxes -- the intangibles and the tangibles. I just think Iga is the most solid of all players out there. She doesn't seem to have any big holes in her game. She's an excellent front-runner. Once she gets going and she's winning, she has that confidence."

Thank you 🙏🏻
