Iga Swiatek dreams of attending university sometime in the future when she finally hangs up her racquet.
The Pole who turns 22 at the end of the month may have a long wait to swap the court for the library, with her tennis career looking in top shape.
Swiatek is already something of a bookworm on the WTA Tour and frequently tweets about the books she is reading – often the classics and also in English.
The three-time Grand Slam winner told the Tennis Channel: “I really like to learn, so I’m kind of still used to school.
“I finished two years ago and miss just having some stimulation that way.
“But I know I can’t do much because my priority is tennis and my career.
“I’m pretty sure that maybe after I finish, I will go to some university.”
Swiatek said her natural sense of curiosity is what is driving her future search for knowledge.
“I’m just curious about the world – but sometimes I have to stop being curious because I need to focus on tennis.
‘I’m trying to (maintain) that curiosity – maybe not during the matches and tournaments, but when I have time off.”
