Early life and background
2016 to 2017: Junior career and early years
In summer 2016, Świątek defeated Olga Danilović in the final of the Canadian Open Junior Championships, and followed that with her first win in a senior ITF tournament in Stockholm at age 15. She then beat Marta Kostyuk in the title match at the AGL Loy Yang Traralgon Junior International in January 2017, and then claimed her first clay-court singles title on the ITF pro circuit a month later with a victory over Martina Di Giuseppe in Bergamo. Świątek came through the qualifying rounds to reach the final.
2018: Wimbledon Championships junior singles title
Świątek missed seven months after right ankle surgery in 2017, but made a return in both ITF and junior Grand Slam tournaments.
On 14 July 2018, Świątek reached her first Grand Slam junior singles final, in which she defeated Switzerland's Leonie Küng in straight sets. Świątek became the fourth Polish junior champion at Wimbledon after Aleksandra Olsza and Agnieszka and Urszula Radwańska.
Świątek won back-to-back $60,000 titles in Budapest and Montreux to enter the top 200.
In October, Świątek competed at the third Summer Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires. She qualified based on her ITF world junior rankings, and played singles, doubles and mixed doubles. She won the gold medal in doubles with Kaja Juvan, defeating Yuki Naito and Naho Sato of Japan in the final.

She made it through the qualifying rounds of the Australian Open, and in the first round, Świątek defeated Ana Bogdan in three sets. Following the Australian Open, Świątek achieved a new career-high singles ranking of No. 140 and participated in the 2019 Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone, which was played in Zielona Gora, Poland.
In February, Świątek made it to the second round at the Hungarian Ladies Open.

She then defeated the No. 8 seed Vera Lapko and Kristýna Plíšková to reach her first WTA final, which she lost to Polona Hercog in three sets. Reaching the Lugano final boosted her into the Top 100 for the very first time.

Making her French Open main draw debut, Świątek became the second player born in the 2000s to reach week two of a major - following Amanda Anisimova's efforts at the Australian Open. Świątek lost to defending champion Simona Halep in the fourth round.
At the 2019 Citi Open, Świątek recovered from a set and a double break deficit for a win over Ons Jabeur and then lost in the second round to the eventual champion Jessica Pegula. Świątek continued at the 2019 Rogers Cup, where she defeated Shelby Rogers and Heather Watson in the qualifying rounds to make the main draw.

- 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. The Dubai Championships were classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by the Qatar Open for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, the Dubai Championships regained its Premier 5 status while the Qatar Open was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
