While the Bromley teenager might not be following Abramowicz’s advice about building a solid, long-term team, she could still benefit from the rest of team Swiatek’s mentality. Abramowicz, who has been working with Swiatek for three years, shared more tips for long-term success, adding: “And also to have time to think about this core values that all of us will have, as I said these core things such as moral code, such as experience and every other thing that helps to build up that way.
“And part of my approach is that an athlete is always first of all a human being, that would be something that I would be focusing [on] a lot especially with players, athletes in sports that are aiming for success. And probably last but not least, we often try to prepare ourselves to cope with loss and obviously we talk a lot about having lessons from that which is great and learning from them, but I do think that especially high performance sportspeople do not put enough attention to prepare for success and everything that comes afterwards.”
