Iga Swiatek recently spoke about Netflix's Break Point, which caused outrage among tennis fans a few months ago.
Swiatek took part in the Break Point and recently admitted to only watching one episode. It was a nice experience for her, but she also revealed that she's not really comfortable having cameras around all the time.
She further echoed those statements after her win over Marketa Vondrousova at the 2023 Cincinnati Masters, talking about the way a scene from the show was edited, making it seem like she and her psychologist clashed over a haircut. The situation created outrage among fans a few months ago, but the world no. 1 on the WTA Tour cleared the air.
There were some things that I thought they edited it, and people kind of misunderstood sometimes few situations in the episode. Well, we already be done a little bit differently.
Yeah, there was a lot of hate after the episode came out. That's another thing that kind of convinced me that I don't need that right now at this stage of my career. So, yeah, I wish Netflix could do it a little bit differently, some things.
Talking about the hair situation specifically, Swiatek explained that she was being sarcastic while the edit made it seem like she clashed with her psychologist.
Yeah, I was sarcastic and I said I'm not going to, like, adjust my haircut to tennis because I tend to, early years, few years back, cut my hair really short. When I was playing, it was falling here, and I couldn't really do anything about it. My hair is really chaotic. It needs to be perfect, because if not, I can't really control it.
Daria reminded me about that. She got a lot of hate that she's like, I don't know, has influence on my haircut.
