Swiatek reveals her first big post-win purchase
Published Oct 15, 2020
After winning Roland Garros, Iga Swiatek said her dream was to own a yacht and cruise the lakes in Poland. That, along with her win in Paris without the loss of a set, reminded many of Rafael Nadal (he just upgraded his yacht this year to an 80-foot catamaran).
But the 19-year-old isn't quite ready for such a huge financial commitment. She shared what her first "big" purchase was with her nearly $2 million paycheck.
