I’ll be back soon: Swiatek optimistic for French Open despite Rome injury

A day after Iga Swiatek retired from the Italian Open quarterfinals with a right thigh injury, the world No 1 player offered a hopeful prognosis saying the injury “shouldn’t be anything serious”, adding that she is pretty positive and will be back on the court soon.

In the match against Elena Rybakina, on Wednesday, Swiatek pulled out with the match tied at two games apiece in the third set. She initially sustained the injury in the second-set tiebreak and called for a medical timeout.

Despite her efforts to carry on, Swiatek eventually had to decide to forfeit the match. Before the injury, she was on a 14-match 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, pretty sudden. At the beginning, I didn’t really know if it was serious or not.

“We did an examination with the physio afterwards. It shouldn’t be anything serious, so I’m pretty positive that I’ll be back soon,” Swiatek was quoted by the Tennis Majors website.

The 21-year-old Pole is a three-time major champion and the reigning Roland Garros champion. She has held her position as the top-ranked player for 59 consecutive weeks.

Reigning Wimbledon champion, Rybakina, has been a difficult opponent for Swiatek this year, defeating her in both Australia and Indian Wells.

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

“For sure I feel tired,” she said. “I think it was the right decision to stop playing because I felt pain when I was stretching, when I did, like, harder movements,”

From the start of Stuttgart to her withdrawal in Rome, Swiatek has played every week. The extra few days of rest, she said, will do her good as she wants to play safe and do not want to exploit her body much.
