Iga Swiatek revealed compassion for Lesia Tsurenko as the Pole recognized that there need to be much more discussions focused around aiding Ukrainian gamers. On Monday, Tsurenko made a sensational insurance claim as she claimed that the discussion with WTA CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Steve Simon provided her a panic attack.
According to Tsurenko, Simon informed her that if there were Russian and also Belarusian gamers sustaining their federal government, she ought to not be distressed since it’s simply their viewpoint. Tsurenko was set up to play Belarusia’s Aryna Sabalenka in the Indian Wells 3rd round yet took out after suffering a panic attack.
Swiatek on the Tsurenko information
“I absolutely recognize why she took out, since truthfully I regard Ukrainian women a lot. If a bomb landed in my nation or if my house was damaged, I do not understand if I might take care of that and also contend.
You need to truly emotionally exist to contend weekly. So I obtain that she had not been prepared to do that. I really feel much more need to be done to aid Ukrainian gamers since every little thing we go over in tennis has to do with Belarusian and also Russian gamers, if they need to be permitted, what’s happening with them.
I do not assume that’s right, since we need to concentrate much more on aiding Ukrainian gamers and also giving them every little thing they require since they essentially need to deal with all their family members, and also there’s a great deal of luggage on their shoulders,” Swiatek said.
The relationship between Ukrainian and Russian/Belarusian players hasn’t been great over the last year as Ukrainian players believe that there is a good number of Russian and Belarusian players supporting their governments.
“At the beginning we didn’t have proper leadership to guide us through all of that. There’s a lot of tension in the locker room that obviously is going to be there because there’s a war. But maybe it should be a little bit less if WTA put some action at the beginning to explain to everybody what’s right and what’s not,” Swiatek claimed.
