Iga Swiatek finds joy in regaining the World No. 1 spot

Iga Swiatek faced a lot of criticism after she had to stop down the rankings making way for Aryna Sabalenka after the US Open. Despite being one of the most consistent players of the year, Swiatek’s shock round of 16 exit at the US Open put Sabalenka in the World No.1 spot. She kept believing in her prolonged process and just two months after losing the post, she regained the World No. 1 spot.

Swiatek recently talked about how much joy she feels having defended her position successfully this year despite having a possible scare in the midst of it.

Swiatek also shared how tough this year has been to be at the top of the pile considering Sabalenka’s impressive run of form at the Grand Slams. She also added that the Belarussian deserved to end the year as the No. 1 but for her to bag titles in China and Cancun, she considers herself fortunate to have regained the spot.
