“There are breakthroughs and then there are attacks” wrote Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated. “At the French Open 2020 we got an example of the latter. Iga Swiatek, who in her short career was outside the top 50 and without a pro title, came to Paris and shot through the draw without losing sets. ”
“In the biggest match of her life, she maintained her level, married Courtcraft with unanswerable strength and ran over an opponent,” continued Wertheim.

“Swiatek got out of the blocks at the cheapest opportunity of her career and performed with the same enthusiasm, tenacity and stability that she had shown throughout the tournament.” Steve Flink of Tennis.com closed.
Shortly at the start of the tournament, the world was number 54 “Wasn’t sure whether she would be involved in tennis in the long term or go to university” explained Matthew Henry at the BBC. “Now the 19-year-old is a Grand Slam champion.” Swiatek is expected to climb to 17th place in the world rankings in the new individual ranking on Monday.
Swiatek hat I’ve never shied away from discussing her work with her traveling sports psychologist Daria Abramowicz and in Paris, the mental and physical work paid off for the 19-year-old.
“Mental coaches are nothing new in tennis” said Ava Wallace of the Washington Post. “But to travel with you at such a young age without winning a single title in the WTA before this French Open is remarkable. It was a big difference for Swiatek. “

“Swiatek is rightly open to the mental dimension of sport”, emphasized Wertheim in his contribution. “And Abramowicz had great advice after Swiatek’s semi-final win: Don’t look at your cell phone.”
Swiatek also delighted an entire country and became the first Grand Slam individual champion from Poland, either on the women’s or men’s tour.
When the Polish national anthem rang out during the trophy ceremony, a masked Swiatek “couldn’t contain her smile, which creased her eyes when the song was played on”. said Karen Crouse of the New York Times.
Crouse added that Swiatek “was quick to point out that it was merely extending a path that had been paved by others,” particularly the former World No. 2 Agnieszka Radwanska.
STATS CORNER: How dominant was Swiatek’s Roland Garros?
“When Swiatek stood on the podium of Court Philippe Chatrier and played the Polish national anthem through the loudspeakers, tennis crowned its newest star.” said D’Arcy Maine of ESPN. “There have been several great champions for the first time in women’s tennis in recent years, including Kenin, but few have been so convincing and made for more.”
Indeed, Swiatek’s worthy addition to a group of youngsters who have recently rallied the Grand Slam titles has been a prevailing topic among experts. 19-year-old Swiatek joins 20-year-old Bianca Andreescu, 21-year-old Kenin and 22-year-old Naomi Osaka as the winners of the last four Grand Slam events.
“In a way, women’s tennis hasn’t been open for the past two years.” schrieb The Guardian Tumaini Carayol. “The young people have arrived and are consequently slamming the door on the rest.”
“The common denominator between them is the contempt they have shown for custom and experience,” Carayol continued. “They are here, they are good enough and they will do their best on the big stages to win.”
