In a letter to the Players Tribune, Iga Swiatek lays out everything from his dreams to his questions, revealing his battle with social unrest.
Swiatek is an open-minded and enthusiastic mental health advocate for the use of sports psychologists early in her career. She speaks positively about it all and continues to advocate for people to stay healthy in that sense. It’s clear that he’s sticking to it.
“You might imagine that when I was a kid, I would stay up all night dreaming of being a big tennis player, but that’s not the case. The truth is, at night, I feel a little more natural in social situations.” “I was very introverted, so it was really hard for me to talk to people. I hated how difficult it was for me.”
“I feel really bad about not making connections. There’s not a lot of talk about other athletes, and that’s okay.”
