Iga Swiatek has been consistently on the top but that has not made her arrogant at all. In fact, she has been humbled by the process of learning and winning on different surfaces. Recently in an Instagram story, Barbara Krejcikova told an Iga fan that she is “Super nice and humble“. She is always very respectful of her opponent and also of senior players.
