Ana. The conditions were very tough
The Serbian Beauty commented “The conditions were very tough. It was very gusty, and rain was coming at times. I was really happy I managed to keep composed when we got back on court after the rain delay. Even though I didn’t play very well in the first game, I served well the next game. I was happy about that.
In the third I knew I had to step up my level, because she’s a very dangerous opponent. She gets a lot of balls, and she was very aggressive on her down-the-line shots. I tried to take that away from her.”
Next vs. Svitolina
