Swiatek Hits Out At 'Annoying' Waiting For WTA To Announce WTA Finals Venue

Swiatek Hits Out At 'Annoying' Waiting For WTA To Announce WTA Finals Venue

by Sebastian Dahlman

Iga Swiatek likes to plan ahead, but she can't as she doesn't know where the WTA Finals will take place, and it's 'annoying' as she revealed ahead of the 2023 US Open.

Swiatek leaves very little to chance, and that's one of the reasons why she's the number one player in the world. To be as great as she does, she plans her schedule, but she can't really do that this year because it's not known.

The WTA Finals is the year's final event for many of the top players, but we don't know where they will take place. Some have already voiced their bewilderment about the situation, with rumblings suggesting that Saudi Arabia could be an option, and she was asked about the possibility of that.

I don't have a lot of thoughts because we hear many stuff on tour. I'm still waiting for, like, the final decision. We as players, we are not involved in all the discussions. I'm kind of waiting on what WTA will tell us. For sure it's pretty unfortunate and annoying we don't have any decision yet. But I'll see. I'll probably have more to say when the decision is going to be out.

Swiatek would like to play in the Billie Jean King Cup Finals after Poland got a wild card entry, but she can't really plan that without knowing what will happen with the WTA Finals. It's very frustrating for her. We're basically three months away, and there is little to no information about the venue. We don't even know who might get it.

: Well, obviously we want to know because it's hard to plan also what's going to happen after. I would love to play Billie Jean King Cup Finals, especially when we got a wild card. I don't know where the Finals are going to be, how it's going to look with the traveling and everything.

It would be great, yeah, if the decision were made earlier. Especially when we were in Fort Worth, they kind of assured us the decision is going to be made at the beginning of the year. It is a little bit annoying, but as players there's nothing we can do, because it's all about business and negotiations that WTA has, so we kind of have to wait.
