When I was three years old, my father took me to the tennis court. I was hooked straight away. I’ve always just really enjoyed the game.
That enjoyment, that pleasure is still there now. It’s still the main reason I play, simply because I love playing the game. I love the way it gives me an opportunity to grow as a person. You have to be open to learning from your mistakes and you have to be committed to giving it your all every time. Those are the things that will make you better. In tennis and in life.
It’s one of the greatest challenges in tennis, to analyse a match and see what you can learn. It’s a really important part of the way you improve.
Up until now, my proudest moment has been winning my first WTA title in Rio. I’ve heard players say that your first tournament win is special. Now I know what they mean. Rio will always be a special moment in my career. My goal now is to play my way into the top 20.
That enjoyment, that pleasure is still there now. It’s still the main reason I play, simply because I love playing the game.
