Very interesting report.
They both played very well today, but Heidi was simply better. I am curious to see her again, because she has always impressed me.
And both girls are very educated on court: no scream, no firstpump, no everything. I wish I could have watched the match.
Thanks so much for the translation. I'm a decent tennis player myself, and I fully understand the emotional pressure you get playing a tennis match. The mental part of match play is huge. Players who can remain relaxed and produce their best tennis during match play have a great advantage.
I'm a big Richard Gasquet fan. He has had a similar history, dealing with the mental pressure of tennis and match play. He seems to be getting better as he gets older and more experienced. He wins matches now that he would have lost several years ago. Let's hope Camila will learn how to control her emotions and remain clear-headed during match play.
I'm very sorry to hear about the death of her sister. I fully understand how such a huge loss could kill your commitment to tennis for a long time. Once I decide to make a player a favorite of mine, I will also support and cheer for them, even when they lose. Tennis is such a tough sport. Very few players are able to win even two-thirds of their matches.
