Iga Swiatek is following Rafael Nadal in becoming the global ambassador for Indian IT company Infosys. After announcing Nadal as their new global ambassador on Thursday, the Indian IT giant announced the following day that they will also be represented by WTA world No 1 Swiatek.
Together, Swiatek's team and Infosys will join forces as the IT company plans to help the Pole by creating an advanced data analytics and video dashboard. Infosys will use Ai in building the program, and when the project is done, that should help Swiatek improve her match strategy and also evolve her strengths.
“I am delighted to collaborate with an organization like Infosys that’s bringing their knowledge of technology to change the tennis experience for so many people. Although tennis and technology may seem quite different at first, there’s so much in common – including strategic thinking, learning and developing in every situation, the ability to evolve your game, and adjust.
I am also moved by all that Infosys is doing off the court to bring more opportunities that empower people, businesses, and communities to move into the future. With Infosys, our goal is to also inspire people, especially young women, to prepare themselves to play strong and meaningful roles in a world that is not possible to live in and thrive without strong digital skills and knowledge," Swiatek said in a statement.
Infosys thrilled to welcome Swiatek to its family
Swiatek, a four-time Grand Slam champion, is currently considered the best player in women's tennis. Swiatek is just 22 and Infosys are thrilled to welcome her to their family.
“We are thrilled to welcome Infosys’ new brand ambassador – Iga Świątek - a Polish hero who has hurdled immense challenges to become the top tennis player in the world, and an inspiration for everyone who aspires to navigate their next.
Her relentless evolution mirrors the digital transformation journey that several of our clients undertake in collaboration with us to become champions in their own industries. Iga is also a great inspiration for women achievers and together with her, Infosys will work to inspire young people, especially women, to push forward and pursue STEM careers that are vital for our future.
All of us at Infosys wish Iga the very best for the future," Salil Parekh, Infosys Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director said.
