When I was young, my mum told me to do sport to build my body strong and there was a tennis court very near to my house. So I started playing tennis and I enjoyed it straight away.
I like tennis, because it’s something you can gradually improve and you can see yourself getting better. In tennis, you have to always do something you’re not good at. To challenge yourself. You have to try every day, every moment on the court.
If I try my best, the result doesn’t matter. It’s okay.
In 2018, I eliminated Venus Williams in the first round of the French Open. That was my biggest moment so far in tennis. I hope I will have many more. I try to just play well every time.
For me, playing well, means playing with high intensity and being mentally strong. That’s why both physical and mental shape are very important for a tennis player. If you’re not strong physically, you can’t be strong mentally.
