Iga Swiatek may only be 19, but her music tastes are well refined. The Pole shared what she's been listening to while making her way through the draw at Roland Garros. Like many players, she likes to walk on court sporting headphones, begging the question, "What are you listening to?"
Her pre-match pump-up song lately has been "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns N' Roses. She recently shared how her unique musical tastes came to be.
"Actually it's weird because my parents aren't listening to music and my older sister, so I kind of learned it on my own," she told press. "I remember that I was traveling with many coaches when I was younger from the Polish Tennis Association and each one of them gave me something new."
Their influences led to her varied interests in artists.
"I like every genre, I started listening to jazz lately even, so that's something new for me," the Pole said. "I don't know what to tell you, I just wanted to have like bigger knowledge about something that is not tennis."
Ahead of her run to the quarterfinals, complete with a 6-1, 6-2 demolition of No. 1 seed Simona Halep, Swiatek shared her 28-song Pandora Playlist.
As expected, it's got a lot of variety like Guns 'N Roses, Coldplay, Smokey Robinson, Lana Del Ray, The Cure, The Doors and Nina Simone.
Unseeded, Swiatek will take on fellow dark horse Martina Trevisan, who has enjoyed a dream fortnight as a qualifier. Swiatek is also in the doubles quarterfinals, with Nicole Melichar.
