World No. 1 Iga Swiatek was reassuring about her physical condition after she withdrew from the quarterfinals of the WTA 1000 in Rome on Thursday due to pain in her right thigh. The Polish player will rest for several days before the start of the French Open (May 28 – June 11).
Iga Swiatek was forced to withdraw from the tournament on Wednesday after her quarter-final match against Elena Rybakina (6-2, 6-7 , 2-2 ab.). She explained that she is not worried about the French Open (May 28-June 11). The world number one and title holder in Paris will take several days off before hitting the clay court.
For me, the most important thing is not to take any risks and not to expose my body too much in difficult conditions, after having played a few matches in night sessions, after midnight,” said the Pole. To be ready for the French Open, I need to rest now. I will take a few days off.”
“After this forfeit in the quarterfinals (in Rome), I have some time ahead of me to train well before Paris,” she added. I’m happy to have a few days off because since Stuttgart, I’ve had very little time to rest with the very tight schedule we have on the WTA Tour.”
Swiatek (21) also confirmed on Twitter that her flight to Paris was booked and asked her fans to keep their fingers crossed for her return to the courts.
