I find it really good that she is ambitious and confident. That's how every pro tennis player should be.

I really like what I see, and I expect to see more or her and for her ranking to rise pretty quickly. She's ranked 183 in the world - but that will go up in a big way."

"I like Paula Kania's body language. She doesn't get negative with herself, she just moves on to the next point. But Li Na is spending more time in the forecourt, coming in as she tries to win the point, and that's the way women's tennis is played these days. You don't want to give away any real estate on the baseline."
Preach!

Re: Paula Kania - feisty sweetheart from Sosnowiec

She said more interesting things on presser

Before the match, it was difficult to prepare any special tactics against her, she is number 2 in the world. My coach told me only she's got a weaker FH, let's say - a little weaker, as it's difficult to say that she played it bad. Besides, we talked that I would enter the stadium scared as it is the Center Court and my debut in Grand Slam. That's why I yesterday came to stadium inside to see how it looks like, I did the same today.

Waiting for the end of Murray's match, I watch it in a locker room and saw full crowds. It impressed me and I got a little panic. But then I came to the stadium and saw there are not many people and got dissapointed. I though: "Come on, they didn't come to see Kania's match?!" At the end of the match there was much more people luckily. I like to play matches with big crowds.
. - joked Paula.

Maybe it won't some modest but it was difficult to speak about a difference of a few levels between us. Afterall, I had a 5:3 lead in first set. I got to know that whole secret is to close such a set, it is not easy at all. In such moments, when you need to close it out, you can see the difference of class, but first of all a difference of experience. But I think that more big matches, more big tournaments and I'll get it. How important it is to close out matches I got to know already in quallies when I squandered a big lead.

Now I don't know what I will be doing in next weeks. Probably I will play in Toruń ITF, where I am on entry list but generally I will be choosing now mainly WTA tournaments. I want to attack top100 now, I don't think I will need a lot of time to crack it.

Re: Paula Kania - feisty sweetheart from Sosnowiec

Because if she played well in Torun, she couldnt enter WTA qualifying in Bucharest. She wants to focus on bigger tournaments now.

Re: Paula Kania - feisty sweetheart from Sosnowiec

New interview
(in Polish)

Paula Kania: Przepraszam organizatorów i fanów tenisa w Toruniu

W środę z toruńskiego turnieju niespodziewanie wycofała się triumfatorka sprzed roku Paula Kania. Sympatyczna zawodniczka w rozmowie z nami w czwartkowe przedpołudnie przedstawiła nam powody rezygnacji z występu w turnieju Bella Cup.

Bella Cup: W środowe popołudnie ta wiadomość spadła na nas jak grom z jasnego nieba. Paula Kania zrezygnowała z gry w tegorocznej edycji Bella Cup...
Paula Kania: Niestety taką podjęłam decyzję. Rozmawiałam z rodziną i zdecydowaliśmy, że w Toruniu nie zagram. Chcę od razu przeprosić fanów tenisa i organizatorów, bo naprawdę nie miałam tego w planach. Jest mi przykro, bo zawsze w Toruniu mile spędzałam czas.

Dlaczego zatem pani nie zagra w tegorocznej edycji Bella Cup?
- Ostatni miesiąc był niesamowicie intensywny. Na Wimbledonie mój organizm się prawie wyczerpał. Potrzebuję odpoczynku. Później trudno byłoby mi znaleźć wolny czas i możliwość odzyskania sił i świeżości byłaby praktycznie niemożliwa. Dlatego z wielkim bólem podjęłam tę decyzję. Jednak jest ona konieczna. Moja rezygnacja niemal w ostatniej chwili jest tego dowodem. Chciałam przyjechać do Torunia, ale nie byłabym w stanie grać tak jak potrafię. Wcześniej nie miałam tak wyczerpujących meczów. Na Wimbledonie grałam w eliminacjach, potem wymarzony turniej główny. Kosztowało mnie to mnóstwo sił.

Na Wimbledonie w pierwszym secie trudno było zorientować się, po której stronie stoi druga rakieta na świecie...
- Dziękuję. Dla takich chwil się uprawia tenis. Trochę mi zabrakło sił, trochę umiejętności. Ale ten mecz pokazał mi, że potrafię walczyć z tymi najlepszymi i stać mnie na więcej niż do tej pory pokazałam. Jestem przekonana, że największe sukcesy jeszcze przede mną.

Kibice w Toruniu czekali na panią... właściwie tylko na panią...
- Bez przesady (śmiech). W Toruniu zagra wiele dobrych tenisistek. Ale też muszę przyznać, że Bella Cup to turniej dla mnie wyjątkowy. Przyjeżdżałam do Torunia razem z mamą i siostrą. Wszystkie czułyśmy się doskonale. Klub świetnie organizował turniej i na każdym kroku czuło się tę sympatię mieszkańców i kibiców.

Jak pani dalej będzie pięła się w górę w światowym rankingu to w Toruniu Kania przyjedzie tylko w celach turystycznych...
- Zobaczymy. Ale tak to jest. Każda z zawodniczek uprawia tenis po to, aby piąć się w tym rankingu. Taka jest kolej rzeczy. Ale jeśli pula nagród w Bella Cup wzrośnie to na pewno czołowe polskie tenisistki znów przyjadą do Torunia. To jest turniej, w którym naprawdę można się pokazać i wybić. Pokazałam to m.in. ja i Kasia Piter, która po Bella Cup grała fantastycznie i jest w czołowej setce.

Komu będzie pani kibicowała podczas tegorocznej edycji Bella Cup?
- Justynie Jegiołce. To moja dobra koleżanka i życzę jej sukcesu na kortach w Toruniu. Chciałabym przy okazji podziękować kibicom za to co otrzymałam od nich. Takiego wsparcia i sympatii jak w Toruniu nie miałam prawie nigdzie. No poza moim domem w Sosnowcu. Teraz będą tam odpoczywała i odzyskiwała siły, ale też śledziła poczynania zawodniczek na Bella Cup. Nie mówię żegnajcie, tylko do widzenia!

At least she can play Istanbul quallies tomorrow.
Alex Dulgheru will be the opponent.
