Swiatek made accusations against the WTA

MOSCOW, Nov 2 Polish player Iga Szwiatek accused the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) in the desire to earn more without caring about the well-being and health of athletes.
Earlier, the first racket of the world, Belarusian Arina Sabalenka, and 20 other tennis players, including the representative of Kazakhstan Elena Rybakina, wrote a complaint to the WTA about low salaries and conditions on the women's tour. Schwiatek sent her own letter to the organization’s leadership. Instead of the requested official response, the WTA held two meetings with the athletes on October 16 and 26. Tennis players were unhappy with the answers they received from the WTA, and some athletes left the meetings early.
“I've been on tour for four years now, but this is the first time that top players and lower ranked players have come together to make an impact and do something. Because we are not happy with some things and want to change the calendar for the next We will have many more mandatory tournaments and this will have a huge negative impact on our health and well-being. I am 22 years old, I have played two of the most stressful seasons of my life and I already feel that it will be difficult for me to continue playing for many more years if The WTA will follow the path of increasing the number of mandatory tournaments,” Szwiatek is quoted by The Tennis Letter with reference to Cancun Press.
“Most of the thousand-year events in the future will last for two weeks, which will also affect our time spent at home and the time between tournaments. It seems to me that everything is based on the desire to earn more, without caring about well-being and health. There are things that the WTA could change without canceling existing agreements with tournaments. I hope we will find a compromise that suits everyone,” the tennis player added.
