In an interview to AFP, Polona Hercog commented on her many tattoos. The Slovenian player said: "There are roses, there's half a woman's face, a wing and also a skull. I chose the skull because I like the image. Sometimes I think it's part of me.
But some people think it makes me look scary. I only look like that on court because I am very tall. It's a good thing to have on the court. Some of the other girls say they could never do it. Others say they really like them, others ask me if it hurts.
Of course, it does! I think one arm is plenty for now." Hercog is based in Doha but due to a crisis, she struggles going there. "It makes it a little difficult to travel as it's not really on the way to the tournaments in Europe and the States.
Also, I try to visit my parents in Slovenia." Hercog is happy with reaching the Wimbledon third round: "I wasn't planning to play on grass this season. It was a last-minute decision to come here. It was a good decision.
After all the injuries I have had it's a great way to come back. If you had told me I would have made the third round, I would have taken that." . The Slovenian lost in three sets to rising star Coco Gauff.
