“Last year I was injured at the beginning of the clay season, which affected the results. Because it was hard to go back to this cover and to trust my body, legs. This year I’m better prepared, have more free time. Happy that physically I could pass this week. The soil is very hard, and he can kill your body, if you are not ready.
Tried to go from match to match. Every game had to be given to 100% because the girls have a greatly increased motivation when they play against the first racket of the tournament. This put additional pressure, but I left it all behind, and thought only of himself. People expected me to win, so it was difficult, but it can be useful to affect your self-confidence.
But not even halfway through the season! I don’t want to put on the pressure. My goal for the season is to get to Singapore, but I also was glad to finish the year in top 15, because are happy to be on court and show your game”
