Iga Swiatek is currently doing amazing things on the tennis scene, and even the greatest of this sport recognized that. After the match with Bernabe Zapata Miralles, Novak Djokovic commented on Iga Swiatek and had only words of praise for her current dominance.

Swiatek is a player who never gives up, her motivation is really fantastic, and she reminds a lot of the Serbian tennis player. “Iga has been dominating the women's game the last couple of years and is a multiple Grand Slam winner.

I love her devotion and dedication. Maybe she's too humble to say this, but she's got a great fighting spirit. She's a warrior, she goes out there and doesn't give a single game. Actually, she probably has the most bagels of anyone in women's tennis over the last few years.

It speaks about how seriously and professionally she's taking every single point and game on the court. So that's very admirable. I really like that kind of champion spirit and mindset”. - Novak Djokovic said, as quoted by eurosport.com!

Novak Djokovic comments on Coco Gauff

Djokovic did not forget to praise Coco Gauff either. Although she is only 19 years old, Coco Gauff is truly fantastic. She appeared on the big stage at the age of 15. Even then, it was clear that she would build a great career if injuries bypassed her.

Her maturity, mentality, and readiness were far ahead of her peers. “Coco is on the rise; she's yet to win a Grand Slam, but has played in the finals. She's still young, but now Brad Gilbert is on her side with the great experience of coaching some of the greats.
Things are coming together for her.

She played really good tennis in Cincinnati and has also been playing well here. She's got the home support, of course, which is always welcome and needed.
Physically she seems to be very fit. She's striking the ball very well.

She broke in to the top of the women's game quite early. She may have been 16 or 17 when she played in the fourth round of Wimbledon.
But it still takes some time for things to come together and when you feel ready to win slams and dominate the game”.
