We wanted Iga to be ready to handle success properly
Sports psychologist Daria Abramowicz is thrilled to see Iga Swiatek achieve major success on the WTA Tour and to have been able to help the Pole become a mentally strong person. Swiatek is only 20 years old but she has already established herself as a dominant force and the new face of women’s football.
Swiatek was a star even before this season, but in 2022 she has taken her game to a whole new level. Swiatek has won his last 28 games and will be aiming to claim his sixth consecutive French Open title. Swiatek speaks regularly with Abramowicz and his decision to appoint a sports psychologist has paid off massively.
Abramowicz is getting a lot of attention as many believe she played a major role in the Pole’s success. Abramowicz always believed that Swiatek would become a major star and she was doing her best to prepare the pole once that time came.
Abramowicz: I’m proud of Swiatek
“We tried really, really hard, even before Roland Garros 2020, to prepare Iga,” Abramowicz told PA news agency. “We as a team, and obviously Iga herself, have done all the hard work to be able to properly handle success when it comes.
“And I’m not saying ‘if’ because, if we have goals and we work towards those goals, we use that mindset, ‘OK, we’ll reach them, so what’s next? “Certainly, she didn’t surprise me.
I’m so proud of her for using all the tools she’s learned over the past three years. I really get to see how she uses these tools, how she uses the right attitude and how she handles challenges.
“There are huge challenges and I feel like this is just the beginning. It’s a lot of career ahead of her and there will be many, many more and we will work hard to manage them well. “Creating and managing a healthy and sustainable career these days, especially in the age of social media and mobile devices and other pressures, is something that is a big challenge for almost everyone in sport. high level”.
