Being talented is not enough to achieve this feat, and Naomi had to go through a lot in order to find the optimal “mental set up” also with the precious help of her coach Sascha Bajin.

During a recent interview, Naomi reflected about his biggest improvements, and she believes that 1 thing was the key to her success.
“When I was younger, I put too much pressure on me. Now I focus on point by point and match by match, and that’s working.”
Talking about her capacity of refocusing, Naomi went back to the 3rd set of the Australian Open final when she managed to regroup after she imploded in the second set when she was also unable to convert 3 consecutive championship points. The Japanese said
“Yeah, I mean, it didn’t really take that long. I didn’t have a choice on how long the break was. I don’t know like I felt like I didn’t want to have any regrets. I think if I didn’t regroup after the second set, then I would have looked back on this match and probably cried or something.”
