Belarus Victoria Azarenka compared her current state with sensations at the start of the season.
“It seems that an entire eternity has passed since then. That period was very difficult for me. I rethought a lot and understood in which direction I should move in my career and personal life. Those decisions predetermined my current state: now I am more cheerful confident, motivated and happy. In fact, in the previous few months I have learned more about myself than in my whole life.
For the first time I realized what it means to live in the moment. Around everyone says that you need to enjoy every little thing that happens, but you do not understand. You feel bad and sad, what the hell is the moment ?! However, I learned this. There is always a way out, but it takes time to understand this.
Professional athletes are always in sight. They are discussed, criticized. We say that we do not read the comments, but this is not true. Everything that people say and write reflects on us. It is very difficult to separate oneself from the image that has developed in the minds of people. Hopefully, young people will learn to cope with this faster, “- quoted Azarenka press service of the tournament in Stuttgart.
