Very good win in Madrid Q1 over Anisimova ! :eek: :worship:

And the scoreline 6-0 2-6 6-0 :lol:

I think Amanda is most vulnerable/beatable on clay.
She feels a lot more at home/comfortable on hard court.

Happy that Marta also beat pusher Bara in Q2 ! :)

But only in 3 sets. Not really a good sign. Bara is mediocre.

A very good R1 draw with horrible, very slow mover Kris Pliskova ! :hehehe:

WTA Insider: I'm sure you're aware that the tennis world has been keeping an eye on you. How do you manage that external pressure you might feel?

Kostyuk: I had this pressure last year and I went too crazy about that. It's like I was the first one who broke through, and I was the first one who fell. It's how it is for the 2000, 2001, 2002 girls.

Now there's so many girls that are so much better than me. Honestly I don't really feel that pressure because, like, Yastremska is like No.35 or something, Anisimova is Top 50 now. They both won already WTA titles. Potapova is 70 in the world. And I'm 320 (laughs).

I don't count myself like a big superstar, because definitely now I'm not.

Like, Bianca she's ranked No.25 and she won Indian Wells. I was watching the last two games of hers in the final. When she won I almost cried, I swear, because I was so happy for her and it's an unbelievable achievement.

R64 [Q]Kris. Pliskova def. [Q]Kostyuk 3-6 6-3 6-2

It was cool to see her on court and on the big stage again :yeah: There were only familiar faces in her box, no signs of new coaching staff.


Yes, it was cool to be able to watch her .:)

Some good shots especially on her backhand side but too erratic today.It was the 2nd tournament after a long break, that's understandable.:hug:

Now I'm curious to understand how she fed Anisimova with bagels.:eek:h:
