Suarez: "I'm not a naturally talented player"
"It was really hard to make it to where I am now. I had to work a lot because I'm not a naturally talented player. I owe this to hard work."
Interesting take on it. Suarez is playing some excellent stuff in this tournament and she deserves everything she gets. She absolutely deserves to be there because she has worked and improved every year of her career.
Congratulations Paola Suarez, the clay court queen.
