Family’s first, and that’s what matters most. We realize that our love goes deeper than the tennis game.
I love who I am, and I encourage other people to love and embrace who they are. But it definitely wasn’t easy – it took me a while.
No one likes getting their nails done more than I do.
I wanted to get really fit. I wanted to lose some weight. So I’ve been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won’t be bulky.
I’ve always been a fighter and I’ve always fought through things my whole life.
I’ve always considered myself the best and the top. I never considered that I was out of it.
I’m not used to crying. It’s a little difficult. All my life I’ve had to fight. It’s just another fight I’m going to have to learn how to win, that’s all. I’m just going to have to keep smiling.
I don’t know if I’ve had my share of drama, but I’ve definitely had my share of hard times.
Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.
Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good.
