I didn't sleep well during these last ones nights. I was very nervous about the chance to win my first title But on the pitch I managed to stay focused on the game and focus only on tennis, without thinking about titles, trophies or the car that was up for grabs.
served quite well overall in the tournament, although in some matches it was not extraordinary. Also now I can have long rallies, 10-12 rallies, and keep the ball on the pitch, which gives me great confidence.
