Iga Swiatek’s dream tennis dinner guests? Steffi Graf, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams


World No. 1 Iga Swiatek is well-known for being a vociferous reader and a student of tennis, but despite having already rewritten WTA record books and won five Grand Slam titles by the tender age of 23, the Polish star has made no secret of the fact that there’s still so much about her sport, and the world, that she’s eager to learn.

And if you ask her, she thinks three retired tennis greats can help her do that.

Prompted by a reporter at the All England Club after her first-round win over Sofia Kenin to name who from tennis, past or present, she’d most like to invite to a dinner party, Swiatek name-dropped three of the WTA’s most prolific champions: Steffi Graf, Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams.

Despite being the highest-paid female athlete in the world in 2023 according to Forbes, Swiatek says she can still develop her business acumen—something for which Sharapova was particularly shrewd in as an active player, and continues to be since her 2020 retirement.
