My parents played tennis as a hobby. That influenced me to give it a go. I loved playing straight away. From then, it very quickly became my childhood dream to some day make it as a professional tennis player.
Nowadays, I play because I want to keep getting better. That drive is a key part of why I play the game. The chance to challenge myself against players who are better than me and to hopefully beat them. Each challenge and each victory pushes you to the next level and that helps you to keep pushing yourself.
That’s what makes a great game for me. When both me and my opponent are playing a high level of tennis in front of a big crowd and I’m enjoying every moment of it.
I’m always trying to improve. But I’ve already had some personal achievements I’m really proud of. Getting a personal best of number 30 in the world rankings really stands out. Reaching the fourth round of Wimbledon, winning two WTA titles (Luxembourg, San Antonio), finishing as runner-up at two WTA events (Kaoshiung, Taipei) and winning doubles at Istanbul and Newport Beach. All of those are big moments for me. If I had to pick one, it would definitely be winning at Luxembourg.
Each challenge and each victory pushes you to the next level and that helps you to keep pushing yourself.
