Iga Swiatek’s 2024 tennis schedule: Four-time Grand Slam winner set for another busy season
Iga Swiatek enjoyed another stellar campaign in 2023 and she will be hoping for more of the same in 2024.
The Pole won a Tour-leading six titles – including the French Open – in 2023 and will eye a similar haul in the coming year, but where will the 22-year-old play in 2024?
Iga Swiatek’s possible 2024 tennis calendar
United Cup – December 29-January 7
Just like in 2023, Iga Swiatek will start her new season at the United Cup as she will represent Poland alongside Hubert Hurkacz, Daniel Michalski, Jan Zieliński, Katarzyna Kawa and Katarzyna Piter.
Last year Swiatek won three of her four singles matches with her only defeat coming against Jessica Pegula during Poland’s semi-final defeat to the United States.
Australian Open – January 15-28
Swiatek will be hoping this is the year that she finally breaks her Australian Open title duck.
She lost in the fourth round against Elena Rybakina in 2023 while her best performance to date at Melbourne Park came the previous year when she reached the semi-final.
Qatar Open – February 12-18
Swiatek traditionally takes a break after the Australian Open before returning for the Middle Eastern swing.
This year’s Qatar Open is a WTA 1000 event (it alternates with Dubai) and Swiatek is a two-time defending champion in Doha as in 2023 she beat Pegula in the final.
Dubai Tennis Championships – February 19-24
The Dubai Tennis Championships is one of the trophies missing from Swiatek’s impressive CV as in 2023 she finished runner-up to Barbora Krejcikova while the previous year she lost against Jelena Ostapenko in the second round.
Indian Wells Open – March 6-17
After the Middle Eastern swing, attention switches to the Sunshine Double with the Indian Wells first on the calendar as per tradition.
Swiatek won the title in 2022, but lost in the semi-final against Rybakina in 2023.
Miami Open – March 18-31
Swiatek was also the defending champion in Miami following her success over Naomi Osaka in 2022, but she missed the 2023 tournament due to injury.
She will be back in 2024 if she is fully fit.
Porsche Tennis Grand Prix – April 15-21
Iga Swiatek will be gunning for a hat-trick of titles and Porsche cars in Stuttgart in 2024.
The Pole defeated Aryna Sabalenka in both the 2022 and 2023 finals.
Madrid Open – April 23-May 4
After missing the 2022 edition due to injury, Swiatek reached her first-ever Madrid Open final in 2023. However, she ran into an inspired Sabalenka as the Belarusian won in three sets.
Italian Open – May 7-18
Swiatek is a two-time winner at Rome’s Foro Italico after winning back-to-back titles in 2021 and 2022, but she was denied a hat-trick as she exited in the quarter-final in 2023 after suffering an injury.
Roland Garros – May 27-June 9
Roland Garros has become Swiatek’s home turf as she has won the title in Paris the past two seasons to go with the trophy she won in 2021.
Next year she will look to become only the fourth woman after Chris Evert, Steffi Graf and Justine Henin to win four French Open titles.
Bad Homburg Open – June 23-29
Swiatek didn’t play any warm-up events ahead of Wimbledon in 2022 while in 2023 she opted for the Bad Homburg Open.
She reached the semi-final of the WTA 250 event in Germany in 2023 before withdrawing as she was nursing an injury.
Wimbledon – July 1-14
The grass-court Grand Slam is the other major missing from Swiatek’s resume and in 2023 she enjoyed her best run as she made it to the quarter-final before losing to Elina Svitolina in four sets.
Paris Olympics – July 27-August 4
Swiatek played in the Poland Open after Wimbledon last year, but the event is not on the calendar this year and most players will focus on the Paris Olympics at Roland Garros.
She represented Poland at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, but lost in the second round of the women’s singles.
Canadian Open – August 6-12
The first WTA 1000 event of the North American hard-court season takes place in Toronto this week.
The Pole enjoyed her best run at the Canadian Open in 2023 as she reached the semi-final, losing to eventual champion Pegula.
Cincinnati Open – August 12-18
Swiatek suffered back-to-back semi-final defeats on North American soil last year as she also lost in the last four of the Cincinnati Open as she lost against Coco Gauff, who went on to win the title.
US Open – August 26-September 8
After winning the US Open in 2022, Swiatek failed to defend her title as she was sent packing by Jelena Ostapenko in the last 16 in 2023.
China Open – September 25-October 6
Iga Swiatek played in the Pan Pacific Open at the same time last year, but that tournament has been shifted to October.
Swiatek will likely return to Beijing as she won the 2023 WTA 1000.
Japan Open – October 14-20
There are doubts over whether or not Swiatek will remain in Asia after the China Open or if she will take an extended break ahead of the WTA Finals, provided she has already qualified.
If she does end up entering the Pan Pacific Open then she might add the Japan Open to her calendar.
Pan Pacific Open – October 21-27
Swiatek didn’t have the best of times in Japan in 2023 as she lost in the second round against Veronika Kudermetova.
WTA Finals – November 3-10
If Swiatek qualifies and is 100% fit, then she will feature at the WTA Finals at a venue that is yet to be announced.
Swiatek won the 2023 WTA Finals undefeated.
