World number one Swiatek starts 2023 with a clean slate

World number one Swiatek starts 2023 with a clean slate، World number one Iga Swiatek said Wednesday she’ll put an advance 2022 season behind her to concentrate on staying at the zenith of the women’s game.

The Polish star won eight mates titles, including the French and US Opens, in an astral season that saw her take a commanding position at the top of the rankings, well clear of alternate-placed Ons Jabeur of Tunisia.

The 21- time-old inherited the number one spot with the shock withdrawal of Australia’s Ashleigh Barty in March, but has since made it her own.

” I ’m going to try to kind of cut off everything that happen last time and just concentrate on the future because I feel like I can take a lot of experience from these events last time,” she said ahead of the initial mixed-brigades United Cup in Brisbane.

” I don’t want to really like hold on to that too important, because I want to go forward and kind of concentrate on my coming pretensions.”

Swiatek admitted she had mixed feelings when she came number one after Barty’s withdrawal, not sure that she merited it.
” At first I felt like I wasn’t sure if this is kind of my place to be,” she said.” Ash, sounded like a huge part model for everybody in terms of her geste
on the court but also off the court so I felt like she really set the bar enough grandly.

” I need to show it to people but also show it to myself that I’m in the right place.

” I ’m super proud of myself,” she added.” I feel a huge satisfaction because I’ve been working my whole life to get to this point. I didn’t really suppose it was possible for me.

” Indeed right now I feel like there’s a lot I can change and ameliorate.”

Poland gets their United Cup afoot in Brisbane on Saturday against Kazakhstan with Swiatek taking on Yulia Putintseva in the opening rubber.
