Swiatek maintains her composure before the Rybakina test in the duel of champions

In a 6-0, 6-1 victory against Cristina Bucsa in the third round of the Australian Open, the Iga Swiatek Bakery was once again open for business. However, the world number one wants to put an end to those cries permanently.

She had added, I noticed it when someone screamed about the ‘bakery,’ but I don’t want to hear something like that during the match, following the victory.

Swiatek, the top-seeded Polish player vying for her maiden Australian Open championship, is learning to be grounded by studying skier Mikaela Shiffrin. Swiatek is not one to swagger when she completely crushes her opponents in Melbourne.

Swiatek said she looked up to Shiffrin as a role model because of how she managed the pressure as she approaches reaching the record of 82 World Cup victories.

When everyone is watching, it can be challenging to handle the situation, but Swiatek noted that success requires persistence and hard work.

Because nothing in sports is going to be given away for free. I absolutely appreciate the way she handled that. Mikaela is a champion, and I genuinely admire what she is doing.

She is also assisting other athletes in understanding a little bit more about what it means to be an athlete, what obstacles we face, and how to sometimes overcome them, thanks to the way she also discusses psychological health and all the things she fights with.

The 22nd seed Elena Rybakina, who dominated the grasscourts at Wimbledon and seems unconcerned that she is playing the top seed thus early in the tournament, will face Swiatek, who won two majors last year.

Since I think Iga is a fantastic player, it doesn’t really matter which round I play. The objective is to defeat the best players, no matter what,” stated Rybakina.

She is undoubtedly quite physically and intellectually strong. I believe that if I play my game aggressively, I’ll be strong from the start to the finish.

Hubert Hurkacz, a Swiatek countryman, will take on American Sebastian Korda in the men’s draw. Sebastian Korda defeated Daniil Medvedev, the runner-up in 2021 and 2022, in straight sets.

He has one of the finest serves on the tour. Simply by the way he walks, he reminds me a little bit of Daniil, Korda observed.

I’m pretty excited about it. We put in a lot of practise. He typically takes first place in the competition whenever we practise!

Stefanos Tsitsipas, the third seed, will face Italian Jannik Sinner, who is out for blood after losing in straight sets to him in last year’s quarterfinals.

I remember a lot from the previous year. He’s undoubtedly lot more prepared this time Greek Tsitsipas, who hasn’t lost a set in Melbourne thus far this year, remarked

“I have big weapons. I can, I think, generate even more power now than I did before.”

The American Coco Gauff, who finished second at Roland Garros last year, will compete against Latvian Jelena Ostapenko, another French Open champion.
