Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova shared her impressions of the past season.
“The season was held under the working title“ Where is the logic? ”- as a program I participated in recently. At the Roland Garros, Wimbledon, the US Open – the first rounds, although I was crazy about training. But I really had no luck with lots.Sometimes I look at other girls’ grids and think: can I have such a grid at least once, so as to calmly go through a couple of laps.
For me, being in America for a long time is suicide. I have nothing against the country and I treat everyone well – I have fans there, and I really appreciate them – but it’s always hard for me to be so far from home for a long time. But after Wimbledon, I decided that, since I was in a hurry to come back, I had to carry out a normal gathering already in the course of the season, and went to get ready for America. It was for the first time for me, and it was very hard emotionally. Although at that moment I did not realize this, I concentrated on my work. In general, it seems to me that in life we often do not realize how happy or unhappy we are at a particular moment. And then he passes, you turn around … And I now understand how I was suffocated by this America, this Miami.
I won Washington, but then I fell in Cincinnati to play with Elina Svitolina – 5/7 in the third I lost, then at the US Open – with Venus Williams. And it turns out that you always try, try, and you always boom-boom on the head. I do not give up, but just want to exhale. But instead, it was necessary to go further to China, and after one and a half months in America, it was doubly difficult: far from home, the food was alien, there was no one close, everything was non-native. I kept thinking: what am I doing here? What did I forget here?
So the season is very strange. To myself, I have no complaints – only to the draw. But, apparently, so destined, through this I need to go, “- quotes the words of Kuznetsova Sports.ru.
