After joining the WTA in 2019, Swiatek made headlines by soundly defeating Simona Halep when the two faced off in the fourth round of the 2020 French Open. Swiatek was born in Warsaw, Poland, and turned to tennis at a young age because she wanted to follow in her older sister, Agata's footsteps...and beat her. Her father is a former Olympic rower who competed in 1988 in Seoul. As a Junior, Swiatek peaked at a No. 5 ranking, winning a Grand Slam doubles title at the 2018 French Open and a Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon in the same year. Now, on the WTA, Iga is coached by Piotr Sierzputowski and is currently ranked No. 54. She's known for having an all-court style and for incorporating variety into her game. She's also respected for an amazing drop-shot. She actually won the WTA 2019 Shot of the Year with a cross-court shot to the baseline that landed well inside the service box. She's a self-professed admirer of Rafa and says she's modeled her style after his. Iga has been on an incredible run and has dominated at Roland Garros where she has won 3 of her 4 majors. She's currently sponsored by On-Running and plays with Tecnifibre rackets.
