Swiatek rested just enough to be able to play the WTA Finals

“I rested for 2 days in Florida, and on Monday we flew to Texas. I’ve recovered somewhat, at least to be able to play in the Finals. After that, I’m going to need a longer rest period. It takes more time for me to recover nowadays.

After the Australian Open, I felt fully rested just after 2 of the 5 days I had off court. I felt fresh and ready. This wasn’t the case after US Open,” Swiatek said. Swiatek has played lots of tennis this year as she is bidding to make her 10th final of the year at the WTA Finals.

Swiatek has won eight titles this year and she is certainly aiming to cap off her year by winning her maiden WTA Finals title.
