Iga Swiatek accidentally turned over a capless bottle, spilling the drink on the side of the court during her match at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix
The video of Iga Swiatek spilling her drink from the bottle has gone viral in no time and fans are seeing the funny side of it. Swiatek is presently playing at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart – the clip is from her semi-final match against Ludmilla Samsonova. Swiatek is scheduled to face Aryna Sabalenka in the final.
Iga Swiatek has come into the Stuttgart Open on the back of three consecutive tournament wins – Qatar Open, Indian Wells Masters and the Miami Open. The Polish star is in red hot form and is the current World No.1. The top seed is just one match away from winning four consecutive tournaments.
Iga Swiatek has had a dream 2022 so far. The Polish star became the World No.1 in women’s singles after winning both the events of the Sunshine Double – the Indian Wells Masters and the Miami Open 2022. Prior to that, she won the Qatar Open in Doha. The 20-year old has become the youngest woman to win the Indian Wells and the Miami Open in the same season. Having won in Doha in February, Swiatek became the first player ever to sweep the first three WTA 1000 events in a season.
Fans react to the video on Twitter
Fans can certainly relate to the clip as this has happened to most of us. Users on Twitter were looking at the funny side of it.
“oh, even better:not just turning the capless bottle over, shaking it not by myself, with people around not on a bench, in a restaurant not water, 100% fruit juice…+ asking for a rag to clean up the spill from a bottle I had snuck in to not have to pay for restaurant drinks”, tweeted a fan recalling a similar incident that happened with him.
Referring to Swiatek’s reaction, a fan wrote, “This is brilliant! The moment of pause just after was epic!”
“Iga going for the WTA meme record. She really is a meme maker”, tweeted a fan who clearly found it really funny.
