France's Caroline Garcia says she wants to get back to the Top 20 and even try to get back to her previous best ranking of No. 4 in 2020. Speaking after losing to Aliaksandra Sasnovich after having six match points in the final of the Caen Open, Garcia, currently ranked No.
46, says about her plans for 2020, the Frenchwoman says, "Back to my best ranking (4th in 2018), already trying to get into the top 20 pretty quickly. I know it's in the Grand Slams, that's where I want to be competitive.
There are ups and downs in tennis, we must try to learn as much as possible in 2019 to progress. Of course, when I hear my current standings, it makes me feel a bit down, but I know it's part of the career. I want to develop my singles career.
I did not achieve many of my goals and dreams. There is one box that has been checked with the Fed Cup. Now it's up to me to try to do better on an individual level. " Speaking about the preparations for the upcoming season, Garcia says, "It's been three weeks since I returned to training and a week that I took up tennis.
On the match, there is a lot of tension, I would have liked to play more liberated to put more in place what I worked in training. I am a little disappointed with my level of play but there are some interesting things. We can see that training is training, you hit it very well and in a match, it's different."
Garcia is also going to play in Limoges and says she is trying to change her schedule this year by playing some matches rather than only training. "After four to five weeks of training, it's a bit mentally hard. The recovery is difficult, I am a little rusty and I have a moderate desire to go.
Thus, it breaks my routines. It's been a month since I did not play a match. Otherwise, it was too long without a match. I'm going to Limoges (next week) with the same philosophy to try to put things in practice that I'm working on."
