    Iga Świątek’s 70 Weeks’ Reign as World No.1

    Iga Świątek, the sensational Polish tennis player, has once again proved her mettle by clinching her fourth tournament victory of the season at the “home” BNP Paribas Warsaw Open. With this latest triumph, the 22-year-old is now set to embark on her journey towards the prestigious Grand Slam US Open, aiming to defend her hard-earned title.

    With an exceptional run of form, Iga Świątek has cemented her position as the world’s best, starting her 70th week at the top of the WTA ranking. This remarkable achievement places her at the 11th spot on the all-time list. In the coming week, she is set to equal the illustrious record of Caroline Wozniacki, further solidifying her status as one of the game’s greats.

    However, Iga’s journey is not stopping here. Despite basking in her recent glory, the ambitious athlete is fully aware of the upcoming challenges. Before setting her sights on the US Open, she wisely plans to take a well-deserved week of rest to recharge both physically and mentally.

    Her attention will then turn to the WTA 1000 tournament in Montreal, North America, where she is set to compete from August 7th to August 13th. Last season, she participated in a different Canadian city, Toronto, where she had an early exit in the second round. Nonetheless, Iga remains undaunted and determined, knowing that the forthcoming tournament in Montreal presents an opportunity to gain valuable ranking points.

    Subsequently, a week later, Iga Świątek will be seen in action at the Cincinnati tournament, scheduled from August 14th to August 20th. Following this, the stage will be set for the pinnacle of her 2023 campaign—the US Open. The world will eagerly witness her attempt to defend the crown she achieved in the previous year.
