Iga Świątek and Rafael Nadal met their opponents in the first round of the French Open this year. The Polish woman will face Slovenian Kaya Juwan in the second round of the Melbourne WTA Championship. She has defeated the latter 2:6, 6:2, 6:1. In turn, the Spaniard hit the Russian Alexei Pobillin, who won 6:3, 6:3 in the ATP tournament in Madrid.
French television station RMC Sport reporter Tiffany Heyne tweeted a video of Rafael Nadal receiving training with Iga Świątek. -Raphael greeted Iga on Thursday, but she was so impressed that she couldn’t answer him. Today, Świątek is training with Nadal in training-she wrote. The fans are equally happy about this event. “The Polish Princess and the King of Tennis”-we read about it in one of the comments below the film.
Iga Świątek did not hide in the interview that she was a big fan of Rafael Nadal and was inspired by his playing style. After winning the title in Madrid, the Poles met the Spaniard during training in the gym and took a photo with him. This is me, Rafa, and his thighs. Seriously, thank you for your kindness, class and time for the game-wrote Świątek. Earlier, after winning the championship in Paris last year, the Polish tennis player had the opportunity to talk to Nadal via video chat.
Iga Świątek admitted at a press conference before the French Open this year that she had no chance to have a longer conversation with Nadal. -We talked for a while last year, and he greeted me yesterday. She admitted that now I am at a loss and even say hello.
