‘I am dissatisfied’ – Iga Swiatek blasts organisers as WTA Finals and Billie Jean King Cup set to clash

‘i am dissatisfied’ – iga swiatek blasts organisers as wta finals and billie jean king cup set to clash

Iga Swiatek has pointed the finger of blame at the Women’s Tennis Association and the International Tennis Federation.

Iga Swiatek has admitted that she is ‘dissatisfied’ with her schedule as poor organisation means she may be unable to compete in the Billie Jean King Cup on account of it clashing with the WTA Finals.

Swiatek is favourite to win the WTA Finals considering the incredible season she’s been having, and the Pole was also eager to represent her country in the Billie Jean King Cup in Glasgow later this year. But the two tournaments take place only a day apart, and Swiatek has expressed doubt over whether she’ll be able compete for Poland.

‘’I am dissatisfied, although I know that organising everything is complicated,” she said. “I am certainly irritated by the fact that the WTA and ITF Federations did not work together to make our task easier.

‘’I don’t understand the schedule, I won’t lie that if I go far in the finals, I’ll have to play tired the next day so I cannot confirm whether I will represent Poland or not. I’m sorry.’’

The WTA Finals will take place in Forth Worth, Texas this year and end on November 7, while the Billie Jean King Cup starts on November 8 in Glasgow. This means Swiatek would have to get from Texas to Glasgow and be ready to compete within 24 hours.

Should Swiatek get knocked out from the WTA Finals early, she would have a much better chance at competing for Poland in Glasgow, but this is unlikely.

The world number one and three-time Grand Slam Champion hopes to use her status to oppose the poor scheduling, encourage better communication between the organisers, and prevent something similar from happening again in the future.

“I am in a position where I can have some influence and perhaps my vote will prevent it from happening again in the coming years,” she said.
