Iga Swiatek is doing a lot of work in destigmatizing some aspects of human psychology as she's quite open with her introverted personality.

Swiatek has been a player who always openly spoke about mental health. It's essential to her as she wants to keep using her platform to destigmatize a topic that has been highly stigmatized throughout history, especially among athletes.

Times are changing, and that's good, but she keeps reinforcing the message, which is very important. As an introvert, being in the spotlight as much as she is requires an adjustment.

It's certainly not her most comfortable setting, but that's why she sought out help from people who could help. She's been open about working with a sports psychologist for a few years now, often talking about the importance of that.

She's become a more open person because of that and praised the efforts of her psychologist, Daria Abramowicz, in a recent interview published by Punto de Break.

The truth is that my sporting career has not had a great impact, but it is worth learning to be open and not be limited by difficult beliefs or emotions. My psychologist, Daria Abramowicz, helped me a lot with this. I think that if someone is bothered by introversion, it is worth working on it and opening up to the world to find your place in it. However, it is not that simple and not everyone has the opportunity to get that help.

She's not the only player that can relate to that. Others like Maria Sakkari, Paula Badosa, and most notably Naomi Osaka have also spoken about these things, and they're important.

They might be athletes, but they're also regular people with the same doubts and fears most of us have. Examples like Swiatek and the other players show that it's possible to be great in spite of it because it's not a huge deal.

It's something that can be worked on, and that's the message that needs to be spread.
