From Top 70 to Top 10. From the defeat in the first round on the blue of Melbourne Park to the semifinals at the WTA Finals in Guadalajara. Paula Badosa, who in between placed among the top eight in Paris and especially triumphed in the ‘1000’ of Indian Wells, after a season as the absolute protagonist is ready to file the details.
“I’ve been trying to make the most of my time off, trying to have fun, but I’m very focused on my goals. Having a routine for me is very important,” she told during a long interview given to the microphones of Eurosport.
On the contrary. I can’t wait to go to Australia again.” The Spanish tennis player will play in the WTA 500 tournament in Adelaide, where nine of the top ten players in the WTA ranking have registered before the Australian Open.
“Last year I didn’t enjoy myself and that’s why I would like to greet Australia in a completely different way this time. I will arrive with different motivations, a completely different ranking, not being able to train for almost three weeks was definitely not easy.
My goal trivially is to win as many matches as possible, give 100% and see what happens. I want to go all the way in Slam tournaments,” she explained with great confidence.
After winning Indian Wells and the WTA Finals, Paula Badosa has already established herself in the top 10 of the WTA rankings and proved that she can beat strong opponents. In a recent interview, she talks about who she would like to play against.
“I would love to play Halep. I really admired her, I like her versatile playing style. I don’t think we’re similar in game, but I’m very attracted to her style, it goes far beyond defense or attack. Her game is both, so I’d love to meet her and see how she does it.”
