Swiatek Vows to Maintain Packed Schedule Ahead of Olympics

Iga Swiatek, the world's top-ranked women's tennis player, is determined to maintain her rigorous tournament schedule in preparation for the upcoming Paris Olympics. Despite concerns from her team about potential burnout, Swiatek remains adamant about playing "everything" to ensure her readiness for the Games.

Swiatek's recent semi-final exit in Dubai raised questions about her ability to sustain her demanding schedule. However, she insists that she feels physically capable of handling the workload. "I think I can handle playing a lot of tournaments," Swiatek said. "I don't want to miss any opportunities."

The 22-year-old Pole acknowledges that she may need to adjust her approach in the future, but for now, she is prioritizing playing as many events as possible, particularly on clay. "I would not be comfortable missing anything right now," she said.

Swiatek's decision to maintain her packed schedule is driven by her desire to be fully prepared for the Olympics, which begin on July 26. She believes that playing a variety of tournaments will help her develop the necessary skills and experience to succeed on the biggest stage.

Despite her unwavering commitment to her schedule, Swiatek recognizes the importance of rest and recovery. She admitted that she felt "out of power and tired" in her Dubai loss, but she is confident that she can manage her workload effectively.

As the top seed at the ATP-WTA Indian Wells Masters, Swiatek has a bye into the second round. She will face the winner of the match between Erika Andreeva and American Danielle Collins, who is playing out her career this season. Swiatek defeated Collins in the Australian Open second round but crashed out in the third to unseeded Czech Linda Noskova.
