Quotes from the news wire:
I think I'm just going to approach her like every other match I have been approaching. My routine has been working pretty well so that's how I'm going to go into the match, i like to look at prank videos on YouTube and listen to music. I love music that keeps me calm before matches, because obviously when you get out there there's a lot of nerves anyway. Yeah, I like to find my own space, put some relaxed music on.
I feel definitely more comfortable going into that match than, for example, today, i had never played( McHale) before, so you feel like you don't really know what's going to happen. Earlier, Latvian 11th seed Anastasija Sevastova became the latest player to be stuck down with a viral illness at the tournament. Sevastova was down 5-0 in the first set of her third round match with Estonian 21st seed Anett Kontaveit when she retired. Her departure came less than 24 hours after Venus Williams was unable to continue Venus Williams match on Sunday, also citing a viral illness. Men's third seed Alexander Zverev also said on Monday after losing to fellow German Jan-Lennard Struff that he too had a virus. Among those women still feeling healthy, three-times grand slam champion Angelique Kerber battled back to beat Russian qualifier Natalia Vikhlyantseva 3-6 6-1 6-3. Kerber took a while to warm to her task on a cool morning in the California desert.
It's never easy, but anything worth having is usually something you have to work for, i've definitely faced unexpected challenges, but I'm not going to be the first or the last person or athlete to overcome health issues to be their best so I look at it as something that hopefully encourages other people who are having chronic health issues.
