This means Mandy always tells the same in interviews
But there are some real news. So Mandy is in South Africa since last monday, the interview was made shortly before.
She was asked why going to South Africa and she answered she never has made a preparation in the heat for AO but this would be important coz the ball bounces in quite another way in the heat. She was invited by Chanelle Scheepers and will play dubs with her till RG.
She is convinced she had a positive development of her game in 2013. She's never played tennis on such a level but admitted that she would have liked to win some of her close matches against Kvitova or Stephens i.e.. But her performance in these matches shows that she improved a lot.
She told she has the potential for Top 50 if she would be able to call her potential more consistently. She will achieve her goals if she manages it to win those matches more often. She had some problems in the past to play as a favourite. Too often she loses her matches she expected to win and she wants to change it. (in my opinion she is on a good way since she was winning the Captiva tournament where she had no problems to confirm her favourite status).
The headline is: "I has to get cooler!"
(I think she already is rather cool on court. Sometimes she should get even more aggressive for my opinion)
The full interview is in the printed version of Tageblatt.lu.
So please dear Luxembourg users, maybe someone of you guys who has that newspaper can make a pic of the full article and upload it here … ?
Thanks a lot if possible
