Swiatek practiced with her next opponent, Angelique Kerber, ahead of the tournament in Indian Wells but the pair have never faced off in an official match.
Kerber, a former world No.1 currently ranked 16 in the world, was runner-up in the California desert to Bianca Andreescu in 2019.
The German three-time major champion made her Indian Wells debut back in 2008, while Swiatek is competing in the main draw of the event for just the second time in her young career.
Swiatek enjoys hitting with players that can engage in long tough rallies and she revealed who her favourite practice partner is on tour.
“Every tournament I would say since 2020 I was practising with Paula Badosa, so it’s almost like a tradition on every tournament we're going to play with each other,” Swiatek said, referring to the reigning Indian Wells champion.
“These are pretty tough practices because she hits a pretty fast ball, you always have to be in the right place to play tennis against her.
“They are challenging practices but also I like these kind of practices where you can just hold the rhythm and play some exercises besides playing points. There are a lot of players I like to practice with – Angelique is one of them for sure.”
