Karen also commented on the work with Vedran Martic.
“It’s no secret that the aggressive game of high-growth tennis players is largely based on the pitch. In addition, every rally begins with this kick in tennis, which is very important in itself. But Vedran knows how to improve the pitch well. In training, we don’t give it 15-20 minutes, like some, but much more. Globally, of course, you won’t change my technique, but we are working on individual movements, and the result, as they say, is obvious. And, of course, the mentality matters. Among Croats, it’s close to ours, Russian, so it’s easy enough for us reach an understanding.
As for Martic, I can say that his main feature is his approach to training. Vedran sees the game as a set of specific situations that are repeated more often or less, and carefully prepares me for them. Therefore, during a match, I almost always know what I will do at one time or another. Of course, this year I also added – both physically and psychologically. But, by and large, it was precisely this approach to the training process that helped me expand my gaming arsenal and reach a new level, “
