  1. I am overwhelmed by the success of IGA SWIATEK at such a young age ! I thought her first Grand SLAM win at ROLAND GARROS in 2020 was a fluke( One Hit Wonder)like so many tennis players before her but her success this season with 5 wins before this current 2022 French Open and the record winning matches and her NUMBER 1 ranking unshaken have all proved that TALENT & HARD WORK + exceptional quality can all lead to a high level of professional sport ! I hope IGA can maintain her same work attitude and overall demeanor for many successes awaiting her professional tennis career !
