World number one Iga Swiatek views the Olympics as her most significant competition due to her father's participation in the 1988 Seoul Games. Her father, Tomasz, represented Poland in the men's Quadruple Sculls rowing event, finishing seventh.

At the French Open's draw ceremony, Swiatek expressed, "Because of that I know that the Olympics are the most important event probably in sports overall." She added, "Winning any medal would be a dream come true." Reflecting on her previous experience in Tokyo, she emphasized the need to manage expectations and focus on preparation for the Olympics.

Despite the magnitude of the event, Swiatek aims to approach the tournament with the same mindset as any other, striving to minimize self-imposed pressure. With recent victories in Madrid and Rome, she is heavily favored to secure her third consecutive French Open title and fourth overall.

Amelie Mauresmo, former world number one and tournament director, acknowledged Swiatek's ability to handle pressure and defend her title, making it challenging for competitors to surpass her. Swiatek's pursuit to claim three consecutive Roland Garros titles marks a feat not achieved since Justine Henin's 2007 victory.
