Iga Swiatek was so impressed by the Greek Crete island that she feels she could stay there until the US swing starts. Yet, Swiatek is scheduled to play in the Poland Open next week, so her vacation will soon be over. "I have one of the best jobs in the world if it allows me to visit places like this one.
I'm seriously considering staying here for the rest of the month so say nothing to my team please. Thanks for an amazing vacation #planetescape!" Swiatek captioned a photo dump from her holiday.
Swiatek's message to Wimbledon champion Vondrousova
Unfortunately for her, Iga Swiatek stopped in the quarterfinals of Wimbledon, where she met Elina Svitolina.
Nevertheless, the Roland Garros champion was proud of her grass campaign. "It's been a while since I wrote more than few sentences here and maybe now it's a good opportunity to elaborate. What a journey on grass this year. I'm proud and content we made it to play two tournaments and achieve semis in Bad Homburg and quarter-final at Wimbledon.
It's a big step we took. I put in a lot of work, learnt a lot and what's better: I found some joy in playing on grass. We know what to improve, what to work on and focus on and that's the most important part of this experience for me this year.
I want to thank my coach Tomasz who taught me so much on this surface this year, my physio and fitness coach Maciej who helped me change surfaces and adapt so quickly and to my psychologist Daria for helping me to find joy and self-efficacy on grass.
You're the team! I did some hard work too, you know. And that's why it's time for some little trip without tennis. See you soon in Warsaw! Thank you for supporting me on my journey," Swiatek said in a message posted on her Instagram.
