Dutch tennis player Kiki Bertens told about the difficulties that she experienced after significant progress in the ranking.
“I’m afraid of everything new. When I first played the match on the big arena, I was very bad. I lost my first match on Wimbledon’s Central Court in 38 minutes or so. Of course, to put it mildly, not very pleasant memories but that is my character.
Now I was able to adapt. Now, when they put me on the main court, I no longer feel fear. I would not say that I have a great desire to play there, but now I can cope with it. This is no longer a novelty for me, ”the WTA press service quoted Bertens as saying.
