Ukrainian tennis player Dayana Yastremska commented on her defeat against Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro in the first round of Roland Garros.
“Maybe I didn’t have enough emotions. Because before that I had a hard tournament in Strasbourg, but this is an experience. I didn’t know that I would win the competition in Strasbourg and then I would go to Paris, that I would have one day to recover Moreover, I play with the Spaniard, it is not easy, it is not very easy for me to play with it. It seems that I felt that I had the strength, but when I went to the court, I felt in the middle of the second set that I was a little empty. I think I had a little more emotion, and the third set would have looked completely different. bottom to say what happened. In the end of the second set I felt confident, felt that I had the next opportunity to break. Somewhere I lacked a little concentration, somewhere I was distracted, maybe I thought ahead …
Regarding the call to the court of physio, then my sock was in the blood because of the blisters, I felt that something was wrong with my leg. It was painful to step on a finger. It seems to me that the most important role was played by the fact that I got a bit tired emotionally. In Strasbourg, I had enough emotions, but here it was different. It might have looked like I was hearty, but it wasn’t. When the score was 6/5, my racket broke, I didn’t have any use with the new racket. Before that, I also played the racket that I pulled in Strasbourg. On the tiebreak I took the racket I pulled today, the sensations were different. And the rival, of course, added on the tiebreaker, but I did not.
In the first set I completely controlled the game, I did what I wanted on the court, it was visible, and I felt it. In the second set at the reception, I began not only to doubt, but I was uncomfortable, the wind rose, and this was uncomfortable. I continued to take the flow steadily, the wind did not interfere with the flow. But this experience, the next time I will know that you need to continue to concentrate. She, too, must pay tribute, she continued to play and look for options on her serve. If Carla had somehow weakened her, then I would also have some chances. It seems to me that in our match in Australia I played worse than today, but there she didn’t get all the knockout and slanting balls, and here on the ground she could drive up to them.
When I won in Strasbourg, I didn’t have any emotions after the match. Parents asked me if something happened, why I was upset. In Luxembourg, after Hong Kong, I did not immediately fall. It seems to me that it takes more time to figure out how to deal with it, how to control your body, to continue to show the same level.
After the performance in the pair I will prepare for the season on the grass. The plans of Nottingham, Birmingham and then Wimbledon. I will try to get into the crop. I already thought about preparation in my head. But the mood for a pair of “Roland Garros” is also there, after all, it is “Slam”. Anastasia Potapova and I wanted to play in a pair last year, but we lacked a rating. We agreed to play at Roland Garros and at Wimbledon, and we’ll already be watching about the next major, ”Tennis of Ukraine quotes Yastremska.
