Iga Swiatek reveals move she made in order to tackle hateful comments

Iga Swiatek reveals she usually limits her time on social media during tournaments and recently she has been opting not to spend too much time on social media after tournaments either. Swiatek, ranked at No 1 in the world, has won two titles so far in 2023 but she has also had some surprising defeats.

After progressing into the French Open quarterfinal, defending champion Swiatek was asked about her social media use. "Generally, I limit social media at tournaments. I often have a period after the competition that I make up for it.

However, recently I don't do it, because I had a few tournaments after which I was happy, and I lost in the final and there was a lot of hate and it wasn't nice," Swiatek told Polish media, per Sportskeeda.

Swiatek said she was 'just a human' earlier this year

After Swiatek dominantly won Doha with a total of nine games lost during the entire tournament, Swiatek also made the Dubai final.

In the Dubai final, Swiatek suffered a shock 4-6 2-6 loss to Barbora Krejcikova. Many were left absolutely shocked by that Swiatek loss and seemingly made the Pole hear about it as two days later the world No 1 posted a message urging fans to treat her as a human being.

"Yesterday I was still in Dubai, today I'm in Warsaw, soon in Indian Wells. These last few weeks were intense, and challenging but we did a lot of good work and progress. I enjoyed tournaments in Doha and Dubai and even though I lost the final in Dubai (huge congrats Barbora!) my level was good despite the infection and I gave it all I could at the moment.

I can see that some of you have higher expectations of me but well. I'm just human. I will keep my standards high, I will enjoy my time on tour and keep working hard. At the end of the day that is all I can control. My effort and engagement. Thank you all for the support and see you soon!" Swiatek said in a message posted at the time.
