Swiatek practiced with an unconventional method in Montreal.
Iga Swiatek was spotted practicing with her mouth taped in Montreal, as revealed by Vanni Gibertini. When a picture of Swiatek practicing with a piece of tape on her mouth was posted, it sparked curiosity among fans.
One fan may have given the answer: “Iga is probably testing mewing and nose breathing.
I’m trying to practice it as well. Not easy during sport but highly effective for respiratory tract. Is that right @MRyszczuk?” The person tagged Maciej Ryszczuk, who is Swiatek’s physiotherapist. But there was no response from Ryszczuk.

I wanted to put it all in and go for it. I’m pretty happy that I did,” Swiatek said after winning Warsaw.In Montreal, Swiatek will try to win back-to-back titles. But after Swiatek won Warsaw, she noticed there were some trying to belittle her Warsaw title.”What a week it was.
I read somewhere that the 250 WTA tournament is not as important as my next challenges in Canada and in the US.

Thank you for that and see you soon,” Swiatek wrote on X.In Montreal, Swiatek has a first-round bye.
