Taylor Swift-fan Iga Swiatek in tears after watching idol perform on Eras Tour

French Open winner Iga Swiątek revealed she was in tears during Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour stop in Liverpool, where she even received a handwritten note from the Grammy winner.

World number one Swiatek, a known ‘Swiftie’ who has frequently shared her admiration of the country singer-turned-pop megastar, took to social media to update fans after jokingly trying to persuade her agent to secure her some tickets to a Swift concert during a Madrid Open press conference in April.

On Friday, Swiatek shared a picture of herself visibly emotional and clutching a note written on Taylor Swift letterhead that appeared to congratulate the five-time grand slam winner on her recent victory at Roland Garros.

Swiatek wrote on X: “I’m dead. Yes, I cried many times during the show. Yes, it was incredible. You are amazing @taylorswift13.”

The 23-year-old Pole was not the only celebrity in attendance on the first of Swift’s three nights at Anfield.

Former Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was also in attendance, and ahead of the show posted a clip on Instagram, saying: “First time going to Anfield not for a football game but in the stands watching Taylor Swift. So, yeah, I’m not Taylor-made obviously but Taylor-ready.

The German football boss also posted a video from inside the stadium, and on Friday morning shared a photo of himself wearing a pink cowboy hat, captioned: “I guess I am officially a ‘Swiftie'”.
