    Iga Świątek Prepares for Clay Court Challenge at WTA Madrid 2024

    Iga Swiatek is tackling a demanding season, especially with the added challenge of the Olympic Games. Despite the pressure, she has already secured two tournament victories in 2024. As she gears up for the Madrid Open, all eyes are on her, eager to see if she can finally clinch victory in the prestigious clay-court tournament.

    Last year, Świątek made it to the final in Madrid but lost to Aryna Sabalenka. This year, she starts with a bye and will face the winner of Ana Bogdan vs. Xiyu Wang. Matches are set for Thursday and Friday, promising intense clay-court action.

    The tournament draw reveals potential matchups for Świątek. She could meet top-seed Sorana Cirstea in the third round. Meanwhile, fellow Polish players Magda Linette and Magdalena Fręch begin their campaigns, facing tough opponents like Sabalenka and Barbora Krejcikova.
