Iga Swiatek, the current world No. 1, was in the best shape of her life. She has won four consecutive tournaments. She retired from the ongoing Madrid Open to take care of her shoulder and prepare for upcoming events including the French Open, the only Grand Slam she has won to date. Swiatek’s current form makes her a favorite for her second win of the year.

She seems to stand out from the competition as she has been wiping out all of her opponents over the past few months. Swiatek and her family were always a little nervous. It is known that her father, Tomasz Swiatek, was an Olympic rower. He competed in the men’s quadruple sculls at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul. But there wasn’t much information about Iga’s sister. So here it is!

Iga Swiatek has a sister, and that’s well known. She was with her to support Iga in her French Open victory. Her sister, Agata Swiatek, studies dentistry at the Medical University of Lublin. Iga’s father Tomasz tried to get their two daughters into sports. He began introducing Agata to tennis while Iga was to become a swimmer.

Agata didn’t even grow fully into the junior circuit, and after briefly competing in the ITF Junior Circuit in 2013 when she was 15, she left tennis due to injuries. That’s where Iga came in. She took up the sport that her sister didn’t think was her calling, and she excelled at it. Iga started because she wanted to beat her sister on the court but stuck with it to beat the best players in the world.
