Federer, Nadal, Djokovic still dominate. While on WTA Tour... - Kasatkina

In an interview to the Kremlin Cup website the Russian player Daria Kasatkina commented on the women's tennis being very balanced while Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic still dominate on the ATP Tour. "I think this is good for women’s tennis and tennis in general.

Because it becomes obvious: even at a high level anyone can go out there and win the Grand Slam tournament. Well, of course, not anyone ... (laughter). And that’s why it is interesting. For example, the "Big Three" arestill dominating in the men’s tour.

And the girls now have a more intriguing situation", said Kasatkina.

On her co-operation with coach Carlos Martinez, Kasatkina added: "He works more with me, but he helps Sveta when he has free time, and also she trains at his academy.

He makes me more disciplined, much more than I was before, he keeps a firm hand over me.The game plan is clearer for me, that’s why we work more on these things. I began to train more consciously." On her mental approach heading into the Kremlin Cup as a defending champion, Kasatkina concluded: "To be honest, I thought I would be more worried, but apparently the change of the venue is somehow influencing, because there it feels like a different tournament, so I’m pretty calm. I am very glad that I am participatingin this tournament again", she admitted.
