“It was an interesting start of today’s match. I do not really know what can I get form Robson. I knew she is a great player, but I did not see her performance after the injury, so I didn’t know, what to expect on the court. So maybe I was a little bit nervous at the beginning of the match. However, what is important: I could control it. From then my game started to work very well. I’m glad with the quarter-final 🙂 “– said Timi.
