Bacsinszky: "At 20 I was Top 50 and miserable" and how she was happy working in a bar
She tells how in 2011 she had a foot fracture which made her stop for almost a year and after coming back in 2012 she wasn't feeling happy and at the end of the year started working in a 5* hotel in a ski resort behind the bar, not telling her colleagues she was once a star in Switzerland who had earn +1M$ in her brief pro career.
This year she knew that after several last minute withdrawals she was accepted in the French Open Q draw and asked permission to her boss to go despite she hadn't touched a racket for over 2 months. She played in Paris with little fortune but 2 months later she won $50K Contrexeville.
She says how tennis has never been a passion in her life but loves competition and will try to get to where she once was. She reached the final in $25K Equeurdreville last week.
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
