In an interview, Aliona Bolsova commented on her childhood idols. The Spaniard said: "I do not want to be similar to anybody but obviously Roger Federer is God. When he goes through the locker room, everyone stays silent.
I love his tennis, it's so great. I enjoy it a lot. As a little girl, I started playing because I saw Maria Sharapova and the Williams sisters on TV." After her loss in the French Open fourth round to Amanda Anisimova, Bolsova said: "It's been amazing two weeks.
I did not expect to be here when I just got here. It was two weeks ago. And I just wanted to leave my first Roland Garros as a professional, to try to go through the qualies and, suddenly, I'm playing the fourth round here.
I won six matches. I played seven. Today was not my best today, and she played unbelievably. But still, I mean, if I'm sad, I'm not being fair with myself. I just did so many good things, so I need to stick to that. I just wanted to enjoy the moment.
It's just amazing to be in the fourth round for me. It's something I'm not used to, to playing in central courts against top players. I mean, I barely played, like, four, five top 100 players in my whole life this year.
So she just showed amazing tennis all match, and it was so hard to follow with her level today. And I was a little tired after all my matches. So I think all the important moments and throughout the match, she didn't give me many chances. So I was not there to take the few I had. And she played great, so congrats to her."
