Wimbledon ‘gangster’ who beat Iga Swiatek was told she ‘needs a psychiatrist’



World No. 1 Iga Swiatek crashed out of Wimbledon as her search for a first SW19 title goes on for another year. She has never gone past the quarter-finals and fell to a self-admitted “gangster” in Yulia Putintseva in the third round.

Swiatek put Sofia Kenin and Petra Martic to one side this week while Russian-born Kazakhstani Putintseva defeated Angelique Kerber and Katerina Siniakova.

Putintseve beat Swiatek 3-6, 6-1, 6-2 to move into the fourth round at Wimbledon

But the three-time Grand Slam quarter-finalist has been known for her controversial moments in the past.

I’m like a gangster on court, but like an angel off court,” she told the WTA. But she insisted that her fiery on-court persona does not correlate elsewhere and that she is “really different in real life.”
