me, Christopher Columbus and ice hockey
Domi: I was like Christopher Columbus
The last two weeks were so busy for Domi that she has not gone through anything like that for a very long time. After the Fed Cup semi-final against Russia, she arrived to Bratislava. Then she had to travel to Marrakech and after that, she moved to the Portugal Open tournament. This is not over yet. Before the first round in Oeiras, she needed to visit Istanbul. And she is in Madrid now.
Domi didn’t start at the WTA tournament in Marrakech because of injury. But she had to see a doctor there. „Everything was ok, it was a formal procedure,“ she said.
She had managed to travel so often in the last days. „But I felt like Christopher Columbus. My body was fine and it got to use to it. I have had promised the WTA long time ago that I will participate in the press conference in Istanbul,“ explained Domi. On Monday, the WTA announced that tickets to the TEB BNP Paribas WTA Championships - Istanbul 2013 were available for purchase. „I was really surprised that they had chosen me. They had picked just one player and it was me! The people from the WTA liked my communication with the media all over the world. The tennis player couldn’t wish for more,“ smiled Domi. „And my own Turkish stamp? That was a nice surprise and a great gift!“
She likes the Mutua Madrid Open
On Saturday, the Mutua Madrid Open will start on clay with Dominika, too. „I had won against Kuznetsova and Sharapova there two years ago. I had lost to Kvitová in the quarter-final in three sets. I like this tournament. I have good feeling about my game now and I want to achieve a good result in Madrid.“
She is an ice hockey fan
The 2013 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships are taking place in Finland and Sweden now. Dominika likes hockey and she wants to know how the Slovak team is playing. „I was training on Friday all day, so I didn’t have time to watch, but I know that we won 6:2 against France. I know how difficult is to play for Slovakia and because of that I believe that guys will do everything to succeed. And if they by chance will not succeed, I will not be angry with them,“ smiled Domi.
