“Before Peter said that around her so many people, and she wants to go back for them. Sometimes she worries too much for others and not for himself. So every day I just tell her, “This is your tennis, everything depends on you. You’re a champion of the “Wimbledon”, nobody can judge you. Play for yourself”.
At first she still said: “You’re so good to me and my coach and my parents, and generally all around”. She thought too much about other people and not yourself.
I think this has now changed. She seriously refers to himself.
I told her that I would not it in a different way to prepare for finals. Just enjoy the game, think about yourself. Not look who’s on the other side of the court, to the opponent. Play itself, believe in yourself, in your power. And that’s all.
Need to place it in a kind of bubble. And then she finds the killer instinct”.
