Iga Swiatek fit and raring for Open tilt

World No.1 and Australian Open hot favourite Iga Swiatek has shrugged off injury concerns as she attempts to claim the first Melbourne Park title since Ash Barty's retirement.

Swiatek pulled out of the Adelaide International 2 with a right shoulder injury but was adamant it wouldn't affect her tilt at a fourth grand slam.

"It's good. It's good," she told reporters on Saturday.

"So don't worry about it. There's nothing bad going on.

"I had pretty solid practices, so I'm happy to be here and I'm happy that I have a long time to get the conditions and get the feeling of these courts.

"But I also enjoyed my time off. So, yeah, it's a good combination."

Open organisers will breathe a sigh of relief after world No.2 Ons Jabeur also shrugged off a pre-tournament injury, after 11th seed Paula Badosa (thigh) and Australian No.1 Ajla Tomljanovic (knee) both pulled out on Saturday.

Jabeur required a medical timeout for treatment on her back during her Adelaide International loss to Linda Noskova last week.

"It's actually much, much better. I just needed a couple days to just be ready," Jabeur told reporters.

Swiatek is coming off a golden 2022, when she won the US Open and added a second Roland Garros crown to her 2020 title.

Last year's Melbourne Park semi-finalist was adamant she didn't need to dramatically evolve her game.

"I don't think Novak (Djokovic) changed a lot in his game since few years ago," she said.

"For me, it's all about staying kind of solid and actually, like, not changing a lot.

"It worked, so why would I change a lot?"

Swiatek, 21, enjoyed a casual hit with Barty at Saturday's kids' day and admitted she would love to still be able to go toe-to-toe with the Australian.

"When she retired I felt like she still had the best tennis out there, so, yeah, I was pretty sad that I'm not going to be able to compete against her and maybe win," she said.

"But on the other hand she gave me a lot in terms of my motivation and my kind of willingness to practice even more and ... to have more variety on court.

"When I played against her, I felt like she just has all these different game styles and slice.

"Even in her book, she says she has, like, five types of slice. I don't know how that's possible. I still haven't figured out only one type.

"But, yeah, I have like huge respect for Ash. She really gave me huge motivation at the beginning of last season to get even better. I'm kind of grateful for that."

Swiatek kicks off her campaign against Germany's Jule Niemeier at Rod Laver Arena on Monday.
