Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova praised Iga Swiatek for speaking up about the abuse case in the Polish Tennis Federation.
Reports from Poland recently highlighted the chief of the Polish Tennis Federation and his cases of abuse, both sexual and physical. Several persons accused the president of appalling behavior with the number one player from that country, Swiatek now speaking up.
She released a statement on the situation, one which garnered widespread praise for the mature language used. Chris Evert was one of those who praised her, reacting on Twitter:
“Just read this… well done, @iga_swiatek for owning and using your platform to speak out about abuse towards women, not only in tennis, but in every field… It’s got to stop.”
