Wins and losses just blur into one as you move around the world playing matches.
Everybody believes they can win now. That's why there are so many upsets in the Grand Slams.
Even with not having that many matches under my belt, I handled the match against Svitolina well. When I was younger, not having that many matches under my belt, I might not have done that.
I'm working on staying aggressive in my game and fixing all the little details.
I did everything – swimming, dancing, and badminton as well as tennis. It was always tennis that I really loved, though.
I know lots of people who climb very high in the rankings without winning a single title.
In the men's game, there are three, four, five dominant players who pretty much win everything, but in the women's, anyone can.
I think I'm realising that careers for tennis players are very short. On the women's side now, players are starting to peak later on, but the average age is about 31, 32 when you finish playing, so I want to make the most of it while I'm young, fit, and healthy. I don't want to waste any time.
You don't just have to be skilled and talented at tennis, but you have to be so physically strong.
For me, Wimbledon is such a special tournament. I feel at home when I play there, and the grass is perfect.
With tennis, no one's going to give it to you. You have to be determined.
At the end of the day, it's just a tennis match. It's not the end of the world.
