“I’m a fan of his behavior off the court.” Swiatek on Nadal

Polish tennis player world number one Iga Swiatek said that she is inspired by the behavior of Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal.

“What elements of Nadal’s game would I bring into my game? Not that I really focus on it because he’s a guy. He has different abilities, different strengths. I’ll never be able to spin the ball like he does. His forehand, for example, would be useful for me. Also his backhand is pretty good. I think in this case we have a lot in common. Overall, I’m a fan of his behavior off the court. That’s what I try to emulate,” Swiatek said at a press conference.

Let us remind you that 37-year-old Nadal is a 22-time Grand Slam champion and a former world number one.
