"Yeah, I mean, I just try to take every match one match at a time and it just happens that I'm doing really good in China, so hopefully I can keep that up here and, yeah, and for obviously many more years to come”.
She further added, "I'm really happy to be here. I played really well and, yeah, it's really exciting. This is a great experience, playing with the best and this is obviously a really tough tournament and, yeah, I mean the draw's out and you don't even know who you want to play because it's just, everyone's like playing really well and everyone deserves their place here”.
"So I think it's going to be a great matchup and a really good event." The winners in of all the four pools will progress to the semi-finals with 12 stars in action in the singles tournament in Zhuhai.
