Paula Badosa, 23, insists she has a good relationship with a lot of players on the Tour and she believes that having a good relationship with fellow players is important. "It's something that I talk with the other players about.
I'm lucky that I have a really good relationship with them. I think that's important as well. It doesn't mean that if you have a good relationship, then when you play against them something will change. Maybe a few years ago or some years ago, it was a little bit different, the relationships between players," Badosa told the WTA Tour.
"A few years ago, I really thought that I had to be - it's funny to say - sad or angry, all day like that, and that was professional. It's not like that."
Badosa taking notes from the Big Three
Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are considered as the three of the greatest male tennis players of all time.
Djokovic, Nadal and Federer each have 20 Grand Slams in their collection but also they have their wives and personal life off the court. Badosa wants to be an absolute pro but also find that balance in life that the Big Three have.
"I think it's very important the people know how it works because of course, I think in tennis you work four or five hours a day and 100 percent that's what I'm doing, 100 percent on that. But then the day has 24 hours, and it's very complicated if you're all day worried, 'Oh, I didn't put this serve on that moment on my practice, or I'm not practicing as perfect as I want to.'
"So I think you have to find that balance and I think the greatest to do that. There's a lot of examples. The Big Three, they're amazing, but they have their time, they have their personal life, and that's the perfect example. That's what I'm trying to do."
