Who are Iga Swiatek’s parents? All you need to know about her mother, father and family

Iga Swiatek won her second French Open title on Saturday, beating in-form Coco Gauff 6-1, 6-3. The Pole, a heavy pre-tournament favourite, lived up to the expectations and buzz surrounding her in Paris.



The World No. 1 had won five titles this year coming into Roland Garros, including four at the WTA 1000 level. She took over the No. 1 ranking in early April and now has nearly twice as many points as World No. 2 Anett Kontaveit.



Her family has played an instrumental role in her rise to the top. The 21-year-old’s mother Doria Swiatek is a dentist and her father Tomasz Swiatek specialized in the sport of rowing and represented Poland at the Olympics. Her sister Agata is a dentistry student at the Medical University of Lublin.




Tomasz tried to get both of his daughters into sports, specifically individual sports, to have a better chance at success. While Agata initially took to swimming, she later switched to tennis. After briefly competing in the ITF Junior Circuit, she quit the sport following injury troubles.
