Karolina Muchova praised Roger Federer in her press conference in Wimbledon. The Czech player said: "Roger... that's kind of my idol." Muchova also shared her thoughts on fourth-round win over Karolina Pliskova: "I never played such a long match, I think not even on clay.
It was tough. I was happy I could make last game to break her and we didn't have to play a tiebreak. I was trying all the time to break her, so I was more focused to hold my serve, till I have 12. And I was happy obviously that I broke her.
I'm super happy about it. Surprise? I thought I can go far in this tournament. I felt pretty confident in last matches. It was tough match today. Yeah, it's kind of surprising, I think." Muchova also shared her story with her and Hollywood actor Rebel Wilson: "You know, she texted me last year at the US Open.
She likes tennis. We're friends. She's super nice. She texted me today about tickets, so I gave her tickets to my box, and she enjoyed it, yeah. It's crazy. She texted me on Twitter last year when I beat Muguruza, so she texted me.
I was, like, Wow. I was surprised about that. Yeah, she's just super chill and super nice person." On the support she has been receiving from her country, the Czech Republic, she concluded: "It was super nice. People were supporting a lot. Yeah, it's definitely given me energy, and I enjoyed it."
