Taylor Townsend's message
The American said: "Life has a funny way of positioning you exactly where you should be.
I can't wait to start the journey of motherhood! At four years old, I was told I would never make it and that I should give up. At fifteen I didn't think I was good enough, but I proved I was wrong by winning the Australian Open Junior singles and doubles.
I kept fighting, I kept playing. In 2012, at sixteen, I became world number one junior, but when I was due to go to the US Open the USTA told me to stay home because I was not fit to play. I kept fighting, I kept playing. I reached the quarterfinals in singles and I won in doubles.
2015 I reached the third round at Roland Garros and entered the top 100. I kept fighting, I kept playing. In 2019 I shocked the tennis world by defeating the world number three and reaching the round of 16. For all my life, for all I heard my career say 'you can't', 'you won't make it' and I used it to find the motivation to continue playing.
I feel like this will be no different so I still have to prove them wrong. If you think what I've done so far has been impressive, wait until you see what I'm about to do."
Meanwhile, as we told you in our previous article, Kevin Anderson replaces Novak Djokovic as President of thee ATP Players Council.

South African Kevin Anderson has already taken command of the Players Council during Roland Garros. The South African played said: "I personally believe ATP Players Council and PTPA cannot coexist. We have our structure as it is.
I think there is still a lot to understand. Unfortunately I was not aware of any of these conversations, so I don't understand what the their long-term strategy. I feel like there is a lot to improve. I've always said that.
I think we've been able to achieve a lot within the structure. I think the vision of the new management is really exciting. current advice, we are lobbying, saying: We are on your side, but we expect you to be able to pull it off."
