Iga Swiatek makes honest admission after shock Wimbledon loss

World No. 1 Iga Swiatek admitted she was "pretty confused" about her tactics after a shock loss at Wimbledon. Swiatek, who came to Wimbledon without a loss since February, has finally lost a match as Alize Cornet shocked the Pole 6-4 6-2 to reach the last-16 at The Championships.

Swiatek didn't look good on the court and after the match she admitted to feeling confused out there. “I was pretty confused about my tactics. As a solid player, [Cornet] used that pretty well. For sure, it wasn’t a good performance from me," Swiatek explained after the match, per Tennishead.

Swiatek made changes to her game in the offseason and it resulted in her becoming a dominant force on hard and clay. Swiatek was hoping to figure out grass this season as well but it didn't happen. “When you play aggressively and you suddenly change the way you play, it’s not easy to keep that.

So I got a little bit confused," Swiatek added.

Swiatek: I felt I could lose

Swiatek set the new record for the most consecutive wins in the 21st century with 37 wins in a row. After losing to Cornet, Swiatek suggested she wasnt that hard on herself as she felt she wasn't at her best.

"Usually I am hard on myself," Swiatek noted. "Here, I know how I felt before matches, I know how I felt when I was practicing. Let's just say that I didn't feel like I'm in a best shape. So I'm kind of aware that this could happen.

Maybe it's not the right attitude to have, but it is like it is. I tried many things to feel better on court, on grass court, but it didn't really work out. That's why I'm not even hard on myself because, like, it's kind of logic that if I couldn't find it even on practices, I'm not going to find it on a match." Swiatek will now take some time off and then play a charity event in Krakow on July 23.
