Iga Swiatek not worried about winning streak

Iga Swiatek is not thinking about extending her remarkable winning streak at Wimbledon.

The Polish star has won 35 consecutive matches and claimed her second French Open title last weekend but she is not preoccupied with keeping her strong form going.

Swiatek told WTA Insider: "I think when I'm going to start Wimbledon I'm just going to think about getting through the first matches.

"I won't think about the streak because I know it's not helping me. I did the same here and I know how to separate my mind from that and focus on tennis.

"But right now for sure, I can think about that a little bit more and I would love to add some matches to that streak. But I feel that chapter is closed for sure for the clay season, but also after the Sunshine Double [Indian Wells and Miami Open]."

Switaek's recent glory in Paris followed her triumph at the same event in 2020 and she feels vindicated now she has two Grand Slam titles under her belt.

The world number one said: "I think I was always chasing that second Grand Slam because I always thought, 'OK, the first one happened, but the second one is confirmation that you actually know what you're doing'.

"I always had huge respect for Garbine [Muguruza], Simona [Halep], there are a lot of players who won two. All these girls showed consistency throughout so many years and they were able to win two times or even more.

"I felt like two times winning a Grand Slam, you're really confirming you're able to do that. So I was chasing that a little bit. Now, I don't know what I'm going to chase."
