World No.1 Iga Swiatek withdraws from Billie Jean King Cup due to schedule clash with WTA Finals
World number one Iga Swiatek on Monday confirmed her withdrawal from the Billie Jean King Cup, saying she is disappointed that tennis governing bodies didn't come to an agreement on something as basic as the calendar of the tournaments.
The Polish player, who was unhappy with the schedule of the WTA Finals and Billie Jean King clashing, took to her Instagram story and added that she will talk to the "WTA and ITF in order to change something".
"I was thinking it through a lot and discussing it with my team all over again but I will not be able to play at the Billie Jean King in Glasgow," Swiatek said in an Instagram story.
"And it makes me sad. I'm very sorry because I play for Poland whenever it's possible and I always give it my best. Playing in Poland this year was an honour and I hoped to do this again at the end of the season.
"I'm disappointed that tennis governing bodies didn't come to an agreement on something as basic as the calendar of tournaments, giving us only one day to travel through the globe and changing the time zone. The situation is not safe for our health and could cause injury.
"I'm going to talk to the WTA and ITF in order to change something. This situation is difficult not only for the players like me, but mainly for the tennis fans that support our sport."
Swiatek reclaimed the French Open and won her maiden US Open title this year.
She will participate at the Ostrava Open in the Czech Republic, which marks her first tournament since her triumph in New York. The WTA 500 event will take place at the Ostravar Arena, which is only 10 miles south of the Polish border.
