It’s a really great moment, she’s the toughest player I’ve ever played in my life and the best person I know,” she said in an interview on court after the match.
It’s going against your best friend, and at the same time going against the greatest competitor for me in women’s tennis. So it was really difficult today.
When I’m playing her I don’t think of her as my sister ‘cos she’s playing well, she’s hitting so many big serves and running a lot of balls down
When you’re in the moment you don’t really think about it.
