Major approval for Swiatek
She’s the defending champion, into the singles quarter-finals, multi-tasking with a doubles semi-final and is now booking in grass-court practice.
Iga Swiatek is causing a storm on social media with her ruthless performances, which have caught the attention of a couple of former Grand Slam champions.
“Love watching Iga Swiatek,” tweeted three-time major winner Andy Murray on Monday night as the Pole nullified the threat of Marta Kostyuk in straight sets.
Swiatek took to Twitter to respond; “Thank you Sir Andy! Are you by any chance up for a practice? I really need to improve my skills on grass.” Murray, finalist at Roland-Garros in 2016, was wary of hitting with a 20-year-old player in such devastating form.
“Anytime,” replied Murray on Twitter. “Just promise to go easy on me as I’m a bit old and fragile now!”
Former world No.1 and 2003 US Open champion Andy Roddick chimed in, “Agreed. She is awesome,” tweeted the American.
Well, in stereotypical Swiatek style, the Pole responded with a comical GIF from the American version of The Office. Gotta love it!
