It should be noted that this upsetting result brought her a huge capital gain of $221,501.

Iga Swiatek Career
Iga Swiatek was born May 31, 2001, in Warsaw, Poland, to a sporting family. Her father Tomasz was a member of the Olympic national rowing team, and her sister Agata also tried herself in tennis but was forced to abandon the idea of a professional career due to injuries.
Swiatek has already made a name for herself at the junior level, winning the Fed Cup with her national team, as well as winning junior Wimbledon (singles) and the French Open (doubles). The Polish teenager finished that part of her career at the Youth Olympics by winning the gold medal in doubles with Slovenia’s Kaja Juvan.
At the age of 15, Iga earned her first win at the ITF (Stockholm) level. However, like the vast majority of her peers, she has not been spared the problem of puberty. In 2017, the Polish player missed several months after an ankle injury that forced her to undergo surgery. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop her from winning two more junior series titles, climbing to the seventh hundredth singles ranking.
The first breakout season of her career on the WTA Tour was 2018. Iga perfected her grass-court skills and won three Challenger and Futures Series championships on this type of surface, adding one hard-court trophy to her ranking leap (WTA Rankings 186th).

The most notable result of the season for her was reaching the fourth round of Roland Garros, after which the experts turned their attention to Iga, who predicted her serious success in the future.
And the Pole does not fail: in 2020 she consistently reaches the 4th round of the Australian Open and the third one at the U.S. Open.

On her way to the final match, Iga Swentek did not give up a single set to her opponents, becoming the first representative of her country to win Roland Garros in history. The Polish professional tennis player finished the season in the top 20 of the women’s tennis association (17th).
At the end of 2020, Iga was nominated for the Laureus Award breakthrough of year, but lost out to Egan Bernal the cyclist from Colombia.
