Paula Badosa opens on her state ahead of French Open

Spanish tennis star Paula Badosa says she feels well prepared ahead of the French Open as she is hoping to potentially win her maiden Grand Slam title at Roland Garros. Badosa has accomplished some pretty notable things in recent months as in late 2021 she won her maiden WTA 1000 title in Indian Wells and in late April achieved a career-high ranking of No.

2 in the world. It is not a secret that Badosa's next goal is to win a first Grand Slam and to attack the top ranking. “I would have changed not to play a tournament on this land tour, I won’t say which one.

But I come prepared, I have worked very well," Badosa told Marca, per Tennishead.

Badosa: There is pressure but I'm ready for it

Badosa, 24, is set to make her third main draw appearance at the French Open. Badosa achieved her best French Open result last year, when she reached the quarterfinal.

“I am very prepared physically and tennis-wise. Mentally I would have liked to arrive a little calmer. But it is a Grand Slam, we all have nerves on the surface and it is the one who manages it best," Badosa noted.

“Playing as a favorite is never easy, especially for rivals who play with nothing to lose and raise the level more. It’s another challenge that I’m going to have and I’m looking forward to facing it.

For me it is a very emotional tournament, it means a lot. I won the junior there, it was the first Grand Slam I went to see when I was nine years old. I have many beautiful memories and I would very much like to do it very well”.

Iga Swatek is the top favorite for the French Open crown but Badosa is also among top favorites for the crown at Roland Garros. It remains to be seen if Badosa can put on a strong run and lift her first Grand Slam at Roland Garros.
