Coming in as the top seed at the Brisbane QTC International, Victorian Olivia Rogowska is looking to overcome disappointment and make the most of this tournament. “I’ve been here so many times now and I feel right at home,” Rogowska said.
Having won three titles at last year’s edition, she has not been able to replicate her performances this time around but she that is not bogging her down. “I feel like I’ve been playing some pretty good tennis but I’ve just lost to two girls that played really well on the day,” she said.
“Kim obviously played some amazing tennis to win the tournament last week and I was really close there.” She further added, “I learnt a lot from that loss and I’m training really hard. I’m hoping to just continue my good tennis this week and keep fighting.” Drawing Abigail Tere-Apisah of Papua New Gunea in the First Round, Rogowska said, “We’ve played each other in a couple of finals so that’s definitely not an easy first match.” Presently ranked at No.162 on the WTA Charts, Rogowska has career win-loss record of 353/272 and has a win-loss record of 11-20.
She is yet to break into the Top-100 and has a personal best ranking of No.102, which she achieved in 2014, August. She has broken into the Top-100 of Doubles though with a personal best of No.86. ALSO READ David Ferrer disagrees with Serena Williams
