Iga Swiatek says she is "not rushing" to complete a Career Grand Slam but highlighted that winning all four Majors is absolutely something she wants to accomplish one day. Swiatek, 22, lifted her first Grand Slam title at the 2020 French Open and since then she has won two more titles at Roland Garros.
Last year, Swiatek also won her first US Open title and she is now a four-time Grand Slam champion. At the Australian Open, Swiatek's best result so far has been a semifinal appearance from 2022. This year, Swiatek also made her first Wimbledon quarterfinal. "I don't think I can answer you specifically.
Um, as soon as possible? Well for sure, I think I need a couple of more years to play on grass... so, I'm not rushing you know. I'm 22, so I still have a lot of time probably, more than like 10 years. So I'm doing my best to win every tournament I play at.
But yeah, I'm not rushing it because I've already won 4 Slams," Swiatek said, when asked in Tokyo when she was going to complete a Career Grand Slam.
Swiatek positively surprised by her achievements
Swiatek, who turned 22 in May, already has a very rich and accomplished resume.
At 22, Swiatek is a four-time Grand Slam champion and has also spent 75 weeks at the world No 1 spot. Reflecting on her impressive early success, Swiatek simply admitted that she didn't expect this to happen. "What I did since 2020 is crazy, it's sometimes hard for me to even understand how it happened.
Because when I was younger. I didn't know it was going to be possible. So, I'm taking it easy," Swiatek said. After the US Open, Swiatek lost her world No 1 spot for the first time in over a year. It remains to be seen if Swiatek can regain the top spot before the season ends.
