Yes, The Games are our priority and we start preparing for them in January or even in December.Said the Polish coach via Polish Daily Rzeczpospolita
Continuing further, he added:
Thinking not only about singles, but also about mixed doubles with Hubert Hurkacz, and this is a completely different discipline that we don’t really have the opportunity to try during the year.
Interestingly, this news was also later confirmed by Hubert Hurkacz, who also seemed excited to play alongside one of the most promising players the WTA has ever seen. Iga is now set to prioritize the games and prepare for both the singles and doubles tournaments.
