Swiatek Downplays Title Chances After Hard-Fought Win: 'No Sense To Talk About It'

Swiatek Downplays Title Chances After Hard-Fought Win: 'No Sense To Talk About It'

by Zachary Wimer

Iga Swiatek dismissed talks about winning the 2024 Miami Open after her most recent hard-fought win at the WTA 1000 event over Linda Noskova.

A week ago, Swiatek brushed off suggestions that she is likely to win the Miami Open after her tremendous fortnight in Indian Wells. She didn't think it made any sense to talk about winning the event when she hadn't even had a practice yet.

Fast-forward to now, and Swiatek has a couple of matches and wins under her belt, but she's still of the same opinion. Her most recent match was barely a win, as Linda Noskova pushed her to three sets.

Matches like that prove to her that thinking too far ahead makes no sense, as every match can be a landmine.

"As you can see, it's not like we can take everything for granted. You can be in trouble at the early stages of the tournament. No sense to talk about Sunshine Double."

"For sure I'm taking just experience from this match and I know what I have to focus on little bit more because it wasn't like I felt 100% comfortable all the time."

Swiatek does have experience with winning the Sunshine Double, as she did it two years ago, but it's not going that smoothly this time around.

Adjusting to the conditions would always be tough, and she hasn't been able to do that as easily as she had hoped. She even admitted it in her most recent press conference at the event.

"I thought it's going to be easier to get used to the new conditions and new balls, but it's been tricky today. I know I kind of changed my mind after yesterday's press, but now I know that I still have some things to figure out and I know what to focus on."
