Russian tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova commented on the victory in the quarterfinals of the tournament in Cincinnati.
“This is crazy! Madness. But I promised myself that I would treat everything differently. And it helps me. I accept defeats as well as victories. So I just give all the best, go to the court and rejoice. This week all the matches were difficult – with Sevastova in the first round, with Yastremska, with Stephens was a little easier. I just clung.
It’s probably good that I didn’t play for some time, because I missed tennis. I have matured and try not to look beyond one rally. Next I will meet with Barty. She is a wonderful tennis player. We never played, I only trained with her, but for a very long time.
In my opinion, she is a very interesting player, combines different styles. For me it will be another test. But I’ll just go out with the same attitude, I will fight for every ball, and then we’ll see, ”the press service quotes Kuznetsova as saying.
