I’ll be back soon: Swiatek is optimistic about the French Open despite Roma injury


NEW DELHI, May 19 (IANS) A day after Igga Swatik retired from the Italian Open quarter-final with a right thigh injury, the world No. We will be back on the field soon.

In the match against Elena Rybakina, on Wednesday, Swiatek pulled out and tied at two games apiece in the third set. She was initially injured in the second set tiebreak and required a medical timeout.

Despite her efforts to continue, Swiatek eventually had to decide to forfeit the match. Prior to the injury, she was on a 14-game winning streak in Rome.

“Basically, during the second set, at the end of the tiebreaker, I felt pain in my right thigh. I was, like, a big surprise. At first, I didn’t really know if it was serious or not.

“We had a check-up with the doctor after that. It shouldn’t be anything serious, so I’m sure I’ll be back soon,” Swiatek was quoted by Tennis Majors.

The 21-year-old Pole is a three-time Grand Prix and Roland Garros champion. She has held her position as the No. 1 player for 59 consecutive weeks.

After losing to Rybakina in the fourth round of the Australian Open, Swiatek performed consistently well, reaching at least the semifinals in each subsequent event. She emerged as a champion in both the Qatar and Stuttgart tournaments.

“I sure feel tired,” she said. “I think it was the right decision to stop playing because I was in pain when I was doing the stretches, and when I did, I liked the more difficult movements,” she said.

From the start of Stuttgart until its withdrawal from Roma, Swiatek played every week. She said a few extra days off would do her good because she wanted to play it safe and not want to use her body too much.

“I definitely feel tired. I think it was the right decision to stop playing because I felt pain when I was stretching, and when I was doing stronger moves.

“For me, the most important thing is to play it safe and not use my body too much in such difficult conditions, after I had to play a few games in a night session and after midnight.

“To be ready for Roland Garros, I need to recover now. I’m going to take two days off. After losing in the quarter-finals, I also have time to train before the tournament. I’m happy now to take a few days off because since Stuttgart I haven’t really been able to recover with this schedule.” The distress we have in the WTA.”

The French Open starts on May 28 in Paris.
