Latvian tennis player Jelena Ostapenko spoke about her victory in the second round of the tournament in Charleston.
“I understood that in tennis everything can change very quickly. I fought to the last point. Today I didn’t have the goal to punch as powerful as possible. On the contrary, I wanted to delay the draws. I felt that such a tactic could bring success. If I managed to make a good drawing, I started to act more aggressively. In any case, you need to be able to attack. Otherwise it will not be possible to achieve high results.
However, on the court, I try not to rush things. At first, I try to feel the rhythm, perform a couple of strokes on the line and only then go on the attack, ”the WTA press service quotes Ostapenko as saying.
