Sportswoman of the Week Ending 10/11/2020
The recovery of the sports world continues, this time with the French Open...in October. And while the Gentlemen's side of the bracket went predictably, the Ladies' side most certainly did not. Roaring through some of the biggest names in the sport, Poland's phenom star Iga Swiatek could not be slowed down. Like not even a dropped set. Not even a tiebreak. Only once after the second round did an opponent get as many as four games against her in a set. And that was in the finals against upshot fourth seeded American Sofia Kenin. At 19 years old, the unseeded Swiatek (ranked 54th in the World) became the youngest to win at Roland Garros since legend Monica Seles in 1992. Easy to guess she might not be done winning big championships. A legend to watch and the Longhorndave Sportswoman of the Week!
