Newly-crowned Roland Garros champion Iga Swiatek got out of the tournament bubble on Sunday and took her Suzanne Lenglen Cup to the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette in Paris.
For the traditional trophy photoshoot, Swiatek wore a collared dress featuring multi-color vertical stripes and black flat shoes. With the Eiffel Tower in the backdrop, the 19-year-old could finally enjoy Paris from a different perspective than a hotel room. What’s more, the teenager earned $1.9 million with her maiden major title, so she could definitely afford to treat herself with some luxury items in the upmarket French department store chain.
Iga’s older sister Agata Swiatek joined her for a set of pics. As we know from one Iga’s interview, her sister was the first one who started playing tennis, but because of an injury she stopped four or five years ago. Iga never managed to beat her.
Just to remind you, Swiatek raced to her first career title without dropping a set and became the first Polish Grand Slam champion in history. Moreover, the world No.54 is the lowest-ranked French Open champion since the computer rankings were introduced in 1975. On Monday, she’ll climb to a career-high of No.17.
