About the athlete

Iga Światek is one of the biggest stars in the world of Women’s Tennis. In 2024, Iga will look to become the second Olympian in her family after her father represented Poland in the Men’s Quadruple Sculls (Rowing) event at the Olympic Games in Seoul 1988.

Światek won her first major tennis tournament as a teenager back in 2020, but 2022 was the year she cemented her leading position within Women’s Tennis.

She won the Sunshine Double (Indian Wells and Miami Open) during that famous year, and later went on to win both major French and U.S. Opens, ranking number 1 in the world before building a monstrous lead at the top of the standings. With Grand Slam victories already to her name, Światek has already begun to enjoy a history-making career on the WTA tour.

At just the age of 22, she already has 14 career titles making her one of the brightest young names in the sport.

Coming off winning the French Open in 2023, Światek is hoping to keep the winning streak going. Her dream is to win Gold at the Olympic Games in Paris this summer.

Off the court, Iga is a cat lover, avid reader, and music buff. The quote which inspires her every day is “You did not wake up to be ordinary”.
