French Open: Iga Swiatek Has Been Superbly labelled As

Swiatek Will ‘Absolutely Surpass My Roland Garros Record’ Says Tennis Icon Evert

 Tennis legend Chris Evert thinks Iga Swiatek will “absolutely” surpass her record at Roland Garros, meaning it won’t stand the test of time.

It is widely acknowledged that Evert is among the greatest female tennis players of all time, and her dominance on clay has not gone ignored by experts or tennis enthusiasts.

Throughout her remarkable career, she set an Open Era record on the WTA Tour at the clay-court major, won seven French Opens, and rightfully became known as the “Queen of Clay.”

But with Iga Swiatek emerging as a real clay powerhouse, the American’s record is in jeopardy. At Roland Garros, the Pole has won three championships, including the last two competitions. She is becoming extraordinarily wonderful just days before her 23rd birthday.

With no indications of slowing down this year, Swiatek is the clear favorite to complete a three-peat. When asked if the current WTA World No. 1 will surpass her record total in Paris, Evert enthusiastically agreed.

“Yes, without a doubt. A player named Iga (Swiatek) is on a mission. She is more concentrated. When she loses, she doesn’t even feel angry. She simply possesses every component needed to succeed. She does, in fact. She fulfills every requirement, both material and intangible.”

The 69-year-old has refrained from making comments while battling a recurrence of cancer. When she gave Swiatek the winner’s trophy at the Roland Garros final the previous year, she revealed the contents of their chat.

According to Evert, she assured the four-time Grand Slam champion that, with no injuries, she would break her own record and possibly win ten trophies in Paris.

“You’ve won three French Opens, I won seven, so she’s in for the long run, I told her. Even if you’re only 22, you will surpass that. You have access to 8, 9, and 10. However, she must pace herself and ensure that she is not hurt.”
