Iga Swiatek is a player who is just consistent across the board and plays as a high counter puncher or tempo player depending on her opponent. Whilst not being overly powerful on her forehand and serve, she has a powerful backhand, with nice placement Her forehand and serve consistency is enough to overlook the lack of power in those shots. When it comes to approach shots, she is able to be effective enough, combining some serve and volley technique with baseline approaches. Her drop shots need work and more consistency off her powerful backhand, but as a whole, Swiatek is one of the more reliable players on the WTA Tour and at 19-years-old has a lot of potential for the future.
