"The matter is too serious, it's about people's life and death" - Iga Swiatek condemns physical and sexual abuse allegations faced by Polish Tennis Association president.....

Skrzypczynski, who used to be a tennis coach, was accused of molesting underage players, beating his daughter and abusing his ex-wife. More recently, Polish MP Katarzyna Kotula came forward with similar allegations against the tennis association’s president.

World No. 1 Swiatek, who hails from Poland, was sickened by the news and took to social media to speak about it while expressing her concerns about the mental well-being of the victims.



“I feel that as a current leader of women’s tennis I can’t be silent about particular matters. Considering my sensitivity, knowledge, boundaries and strength I have at the moment to support people who suffer or encourage you to do something, like taking care about our mental health. And that’s why I know that, when it comes to physical violence or emotional abuse, the most important issue is think and being sensitive about victims. And when we speak up about something wrong happening, we need to think about them first and most of all,” Iga Swiatek wrote.

I’m against violence in sports, in tennis, in every discipline and in everyday life. That’s why I consider the articles about the president of the Polish Tennis Association as a serious matter. Governing bodies should determine what happened and I hope they will take care of this case after the media wrote about the stories of people who they talked with. This is not my role to do the work of governing bodies and journalists as the matter is too serious and it’s about people’s life and health,” she expressed.
The 21-year-old Pole further noted that it is essential that victims look for help and not stay silent about their suffering.



Iga Swiatek further noted that she was lucky to be raised in a protective environment by her father and to have the right people around.

The three-time Grand Slam champion was hopeful that, with incidents such as that of Miroslaw Skrzypczynski coming to light, the right course of action would be implemented and recurrences would be prevented.
