Iga Swiatek: ‘I’ll remember 2022 season for the rest of my life’

Iga Swiatek has admitted that she will not forget her stellar 2022 season any time soon after claiming her eighth title of the year in San Diego. 

The world number one won the WTA 500 event by defeating qualifier Donna Vekic in the final 6-3, 3-6, 6-0. With victory Swiatek extends her ranking points tally to 10,835 and surpasses 10,000 points accumulated over the season.She is the first woman to achieve that feat since Serena Williams in 2013.

“I think this is going to be the season that I’m going to be thinking of for the rest of my life,” she said after winning the tournament. “On the other hand I would love to have season like that in the future.

“I guess the best way to do that is to not focus on what happened but focusing on what’s next. I still know I have many things to improve so I’m looking forward to it.”



Iga Swiatek now has two WTA 500 titles, four 1000 titles and two Slam trophies in 2022. She has won eight of nine finals played this season. The Pole only lost to Barbora Krejcikova in the Czech Republic the week before San Diego.

“Coming in here I wasn’t feeling completely sure that I was going to be able to perform my best,” Swiatek added. “After playing such an intense tournament in Ostrava, being on jet lag, having a cold a little bit.

“So I’m pretty happy that I’m still able to work through all these things and put my best tennis out there.”



Iga Swiatek will next compete at the season-ending WTA Finals in Fort Worth, Texas, beginning 31st October. She has skipped the final WTA 1000 event of the season in Guadalajara to rest up before her final event.
