Encouraged by that interview tbh
She's usually pretty realistic about where her health is (like at the YEC, she admitted before the tournament started that the ankle wasn't really that great and that she wouldn't be playing if it wasn't a big tournament), so if she says her ankle's good now, I believe her.

But now I′m 24 and I wake up and I still feel like I have so many more years ahead of me.
