Iga Swiatek speaks about Rafael Nadal
Recently in an interview, Iga Swiatek opened up on her thoughts about Rafael Nadal. She shared how she likes to interact with players like Rafa who are the “best of their time”. Iga shares a different and special bond with him as she considers him her idol.
“I think it is very important to share the experience you have. I’m not saying I’m the right person to do it because I’ve only been on the circuit for two or three years, but there are players more experienced than me. I have messaged other athletes who are the best of their time and I think they have been very supportive and they inspired me. I’m talking about Rafael Nadal, for example. If I am in his shoes in the future, I want to use my voice to help someone or make it easier for young athletes,” Iga said.
