In an interview the Bulgarian player Viktoria Tomova spoke about how it felt like to face Serena Williams in. Tumova said: "Mostly I play with men who are my hitting partners. But the ball never came as powerful as it did in the match against Serena.
She has a great feeling in her wrist and makes unique cross court shots [...] there is no turning back." In September she went to Japan where she qualified for two WTA main draw tournaments: "I flew to Hiroshima 34 hours - I changed three flights, economy class, only with my dad."
About the match against Naomi Osaka in Osaka: "I was on a higher level than against Serena [Wimby '17]. At first she was a little nervous. I had the tactic of making drop shots. Maybe I should take more risks. I could have won.
I need a few more matches like this." About the match with Alize Cornet in Osaka: "I don't want to remember this match, she takes MTOs in other matches so I expected tactics like that. But she is very experienced, watches the Shot clock and serves when one second remains.
I know that, but it still affects me." Rafael Nadal will get married to his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello on October 19 near Mallorca.
