Is she living in the Champs Elysees or something?

Plus I read somewhere some time ago she bought a house in Sweden. That's some investment too. I don't know if she knows we are in the middle of a brutal recession but she certainly can't complaint. Sounds like an insult to me
She doesn't complaint at all. She's also saying that she lives well, eats well. And she thanks fft to be a good support compared to Janowicz whose parents sold their house in order to have some cash for son's career start.

She doesn't live in Paris. But like a majority of french players who are not located in Switzerland, she's living between Coubertin and Roland Garros. She bought a house in Sweden close to her grand parents's one. But it's a small house for holidays.

She just wants to describe financial reality of pro tour for a player like her. There is no complaint at all, believe me.
