The power, like, I cannot handle it. Just too much for me." Wang has clear ideas on what she should improve: "Build my muscle, be powerful. Just more than now I think, yes. I think I need do more." She still takes the positives: "I think I did really good job in two weeks.
Doesn't matter the last match. I think it's very positive for me. I just talk to my coach. We are very positive to the future, yes." Johanna Konta also lost to Elina Svitolina. The British player said: "I have played her three times or four, I think.
Haven't beat her yet. I do feel that was the probably the best I felt her play against me. She played so well, to be honest. Actually, I didn't play badly at all. I actually felt like I was doing a lot of good things out there, a lot of the right things."
