Then her compliments to her opponent, one of the best Madison Keys of the season: “She was really everywhere, I was only thinking about how I could stop her but she played fantastically and had control of the match.
At a certain point I had to resign myself to her game, even though I didn’t want to believe it would end like this. It was a Slam semi-final and she played fluently, I was in disbelief. In the end I continued to work, pushing several times and in the end, almost like magic, I managed to turn the match around.
Past semi-finals? I remember all the matches I played and I always thought that defeats could help me in the future, in the end every match doesn’t end until after the last point. We just have to fight until the end, I worked to find the rhythm and in the second set, as if by magic, I succeeded.In training you try to stay under pressure, but it’s never like in these challenges and being under helps you react.
The suspension of the match in Gauff – Muchova? It wasn’t that bad after all, during the break I thought it was something I couldn’t control and so I avoided wasting energy thinking about that. I stayed with my staff and we had a chat.”Aryna also talked about the final with Coco Gauuf: “The final with Gauff? She is playing incredibly, last time we faced each other in Indian Wells but now she has improved a lot and is a different player.
This is why I don’t spend too much time watching that match, I think about myself and preparing for this great challenge. I want to do my best, this is my priority and I will only take to the court for that.”
