Quotes from the news wire:
They can think whatever they like. If they expect me to win the tournament, then that’s their expectations, but mine certainly aren’t that for now. It’s about doing the right things right from the start, from the very first match. If it’s good enough, it is. And if it’s not, it’s not. But that’s OK.
I've played Ons before. Played doubles with her. She's a great person as well. I enjoy giving her a little bit of stick every single day when I see her. She gives it back, which I love. It's great banter, it's really nice to see her starting to play big matches, get herself deeper in tournaments. She has the ability, she has the brain on the tennis court... (she is) someone who brings a smile on my face whenever I see her.
