There isn’t a faster-rising star in women’s tennis than Iga Swiatek right at the moment.
Swiatek is a 21st century baby having been born on 31 May 2001 in Warsaw to Dorota and Tomasz Świątek.
Her father is a former rower who represented Poland at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
Swiatek’s father was an early driving force in her sporting career as he insisted that his daughters would be active and even pursue a discipline as a career.
Swiatek’s older sister Agata initially started out as a swimmer and then due to health complications decided instead to switch to tennis.
This switch inspired the younger Swiatek to follow suit, in her own words doing this because she wanted nothing more than to beat her big sister.
That competitive spirit definitely shines through in Swiatek, who enjoyed a career-changing 37-match winning streak in the first half of 2022.
Iga Swiatek had won her first Grand Slam as a teenager back in 2020, but 2022 was the year she came into her own.
She won the Sunshine Double during that famous streak, and later went on to win both the French and US Opens in a year where she became World No 1 before building a monstrous lead at the top of the standings.
Her lead was enhanced by the retirement of Ash Barty, who had won the first Grand Slam of the year and retired from the top of the sport taking those 2000 rankings points out of the game with her.
