Iga Swiatek recently revealed that she made the right decision by focusing more on the technical part of her match against Maria Sakkari. The Polish star showed her masterpiece precise serves to beat the Greek 6-4, 6-0 to win the Indian Wells title.

Swiatek has been in form since her early exit at the 2024 Australian Open. The 22-year-old defeated Elena Rybakina in Doha to win the Qatar Open and reach the semi-finals of the Dubai Tennis championship.

In the California desert, she won every match without losing a set, especially her clinical victory against Marta Kostyuk in the semi-finals with an 83% first-serve win.

After beating Sakkari to claim her second title in Indian Wells, the World No.1 revealed to the WTA press a good technical decision after losing rhythm in the first set.

For me, it's all about doing the right thing during the changeover or break. It's not like I'm doing always the same because you need to choose the right things for the right moment. But, honestly, I think I really made the good decision. At one point I wanted to calm myself down and at the other one I focused on the technical part. It's all a process. 
Swiatek said.

When asked about her perfect first serve win of 83% against Sakkari and how she is progressing with it. Swiatek said that she and her coach have been working on a smooth serve.

I and my coach worked on that since the beginning of our preparation. But we wanted to make the movement more smooth, so it's just going to be more smooth when I'm stressed during matches and a little bit shorter. 
The French Open champion revealed

Notably, Swiatek will be heading into the Miami Open hoping to win the Sunshine doubles. The 22-year-old would be aiming to enter the record with Steffi Graf, who is the only women’s player to have won the Indian Wells and Miami Open.

There are going to be ups and downs still, so I don't expect I'm always going to feel comfortable with pressure. Sometimes it hits harder; sometimes it doesn't hit at all. 
Swiatek said during her post-match conference

The 22-year-old is hoping to continue her smooth sail this season as she will not be defending any point in the Miami Open. The two next Masters 1000 events in Madrid and Rome will be in clay courts where the Pole has been outstanding.
