“It felt good to be back on court after a week. This season, we don’t really have time to celebrate. Job done and on to the next one, which I do kind of like, to keep the momentum going and getting more matches under my belt. It feels good to be on court again today, yeah!
“It gives you a boost, entering the next event. It is tricky though, because you don’t want to be too confident so you have to find the right balance. Sometimes I have gotten it wrong, so I am trying to learn from the past, not to get too excited by it and to focus on the task in hand. I am just happy to play matches, to learn more and it was still the first major tournament of the season, it is a long year, so I don’t get too happy, and I focus on the next one.
“Just taking it match-by-match, be focussed on the match I have right now and to enjoy it as well! One thing at a time!”
