But her talent, her dedication and her determination can lead her to reach a good level, and to give herself many other satisfactions on the Tour.
Caroline Wozniacki's dream is tougher than expected
At the press conference, the historic Nordic champion spoke like this in the press conference and released the following statements: "How did it go today? In general, I don't think I played very well and I didn't find the right rhythm.
I tried, it was a big fight and I lost a break in every set. The answer didn't go well, I had nine break points but I couldn't take advantage of even one. That's not a good thing when you play at this level and I know we'll have to work on it.
Last 24 hours? The rain, the different field and many other problems create a difficult situation for you. I knew my opponent well, there were a lot of changes and every tennis player has to be able to adapt, I didn't adapt well." Then the tennis player spoke of the crowd: "The atmosphere was nice and it was nice to see the stadium packed.
A full stadium and it was fantastic. I have ten days to prepare for the US Open, there are some things I feel I need to do better , last week I was happy, but this time I don't feel the right timing. Now I just have to work hard, I will work hard to improve my tennis.
New York? I'm excited to go there and play a Grand Slam after a long time, I believe in myself and I just have to work to get used to the matches again and compete in different matches. I don't feel high expectations, I'm looking for perfection but I know it's not possible in this sport. I will work hard and try to do better."
