French tennis player Kristina Mladenovic shared her expectations from the meeting with Japanese Naomi Osaka in Indian Wells.
“It’s funny that I will play with Osaka at the second tournament in a row. This is not an easy grid for me, but I think for Naomi too. Playing with me in two tournaments in a row is not easy. We are waiting for a new meeting. The conditions are completely different in Dubai: other balls, other coverage. I am sure that she is comfortable playing in Indian Wells, because she is a reigning champion. Of course, she wants to win several victories here again. I will go to court with confidence in my abilities and will fight as a few weeks ago. This match will be a great challenge for me. Because Osaka – the first racket of the world “, – quotes Kristina Tour press-service.
