It's in dutch. What the interview basically is about, regarding the nationality change, is that becoming Belgian is not a priority to Irina nor her coach Wim Fissette. There was a lot of speculation last month in media, but not anymore. She lives in Belgium a couple of years now and will be using the tennis facilities from the Flemish Tennis federation. However to be financially supported, she would have to become Belgian. But as she will not (for the moment) she can just use the facilities, but no financial support. However, they have investigated the possibilities and becoming Belgian is still a goal for the future, just not now.
Further the interview is more of how they met, how it is to work with her, what are her strengths, what can be improved etc. Just a bit too much too fully translate, hope you understand . One interesting thing maybe to mention is that she will focus on the junior GS this year and ITF tourney's. Also she wants to play some qualies on the Tour, and goal is to win at least 1 GS with juniors, qualify for one GS with the pro's and to be in top 200 at end of the year.
