Iga Swiatek won her second Grand Slam title at the French Open 2022, defeating Coco Gauff. Coach Tomasz Wiktorowski, on Saturday, said that the fireworks have just begun since the Polish pro is dynamite on the court.
"From the very beginning we decided to focus on her strengths, the tools she was using was amazing" he told reporters, as per Reuters. Wiktorowski joined after Swiatek split from longtime coach Piotr Sierzputowski, at the end of last year.
The 21-year-old won 6-1 6-3 at the Court Philippe Chatrier, thus clinching the second Roland Garros title in 20 months.
"She's a dynamite on court. We decided to push her a little forward, do couple of things on her serve and return. But it's just the beginning of this journey, we have much more to do", her coach continued, adding "Every single tournament brings us new information, we will keep an eye on those strength and we will try to develop other tools."

The new coach also explained how they don't take stock of victories and treat every coming match as important.
"To be honest, we did not count the victories", Wiktorowski said, adding, "We live day by day, just the next match is important for us. This is the best way, to take everything step-by-step, one at a time."
The coach explained his approach to the game, saying, "Just take the conclusion from the last match or the last couple of days and put it to court and practise the way and then these kind of amazing things can happen. This is my philosophy."
Speaking of Swiatek's victory, as she prepares to win the Wimbledon next, coach Wiktorowski commented "She deserves, and we deserve as well, couple of days off. I just want to stay with those emotions for a little bit longer."
