Everyone works at their own pace, and you just kind of — I mean, I’m not gonna dwell on this. I’m just gonna keep improving and getting better and looking forward to the next tournaments.
I need to play. I haven’t had that great of a season. But there is always room for improvement. Everyone has their ups and downs. Everyone goes through times like this. I’m not the first person and won’t be the last. Like I said, I’m looking forward to the next tournament. And that’s all I can really do, just look forward.
I’ve always said Kim Clijsters is my favorite player.
I love to sing. Seriously, in my past life I was Miley Cyrus or something. I swear I’m a singer, but I know I’m not. If I could sing, I would be the happiest person on Earth.
I obviously want to win a grand slam, but whatever I do, however long I play, I hope I sustain a really long career, a healthy one, just a pretty consistent career. I obviously want to win a grand slam.
I like to shop. That’s what I do. Online shopping; any kind of shopping.
Just keep working hard. You have to keep working hard and do better every day. That’s all. Think about this as a little speed bump and work through it and I will get better.
I’m just trying to get my game together and play solid tennis and just have fun out on the court. That’s the most important thing right now. I’m not too worried about ranking or winning a tournament or anything like that. Just focusing on myself and mostly just enjoying myself out there.
Didn’t take advantage of the times I could have. That’s definitely something I will look back on, but I won’t dwell on it too much. There is room for improvement and I can do a lot of things better. I’m just going to take that and move on with it.
I’m not the first player; I’m not the last. I just kind of work my way through it. I’m sure you guys will be here every tournament to see me get through it. So welcome and I’m glad you guys are along for the ride.
I wanted to have fun on court. Just enjoy myself out there. That’s the most important thing.
If you mentor someone, that means you speak to them, that means you help them, that means you know about their life, that means you care about them.
In the sport you play the same girls week in and week out. You know pretty much everyone’s game throughout the year. You do go back and look at some stuff. Most of the time, whether you’re practicing with them at a tournament before or playing them, it’s all the same really.
I felt good. I felt really confident. I felt well. I was excited to get here. Today just wasn’t meant to be. It wasn’t my day. Obviously I am disappointed, but it won’t be the last tournament I ever play, and it certainly won’t be my last US Open.
My goal is to be the best tennis player I can be. If I only ever end up being — my career high is 11 in the world, that is what it was meant to be and that’s it. But I’m going to work my butt off to get further than that.
It’s not the end of the world. It’s one match. There’s plenty more tennis left in the season. Just get back to work. Get back in the gym. Just keep working hard. Just got to get back to work.
I’m happy I’m with an amazing company. I’ve been with them for a really long time. The support they give me is great, so I couldn’t ask to be with a better company.
I have like eight fittings a year. It’s a very intense situation. We go through colors, we go through cuts, everything that you could imagine. I’m really involved. I like it. All of my outfits, I’ve loved them this year so far. It’s been good.
I just love all music. I’ve got around 1,100 songs on my iPod, but there aren’t really particular artists I listen to. I like songs I can relate to. I’m definitely a lyrics person rather than a music person. My favorite song of all time is probably “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion. I love her.
Good music just makes me happy and keeps me from getting distracted.
When you have confidence, you can do anything.
I always have applesauce in my fridge, and when traveling I take protein bars just in case I get hungry. They’re my go-to snack.
I don’t listen well at all. I don’t take direction well at all. I have to admit that is my main fault.
I don’t wear makeup on the court, but I always wear sunblock. I love getting done up and wearing makeup away from the court though!
I’d rather be able to play great tennis at a slam than make eight finals of little tournaments and then lose first round of a slam. That doesn’t sound too good.
I grip very close to the butt of the racket. This allows me to get a lot of wrist action to create more spin and whip.
I’m an online shopper, so that’s what I do in my free time. A lot of online shopping, and I just like to see new styles and new people.
I like to stay cool and comfortable. If I’m going out, then I might wear a nice sundress or skirt to keep from getting too hot.
I watch the ball fiercely to see its height and speed off my opponent’s racket so I can decide how I want to hit it.
My favorite food is macaroni and cheese that my grandma makes. My favorite drink has to be Vita Coco coconut water.
Fashion is very judgmental. It’s something where you have to be careful. I have a long way to go before I can be a designer. I’d love to one day, but we’ll see.
I try to look cute all the time.
I train Monday through Saturday. I usually have fitness training for 90 minutes, then I’m on the tennis court for 3 to 4 hours.
I’ve heard that I’m ‘the future of tennis. ‘ But that’s all just random stuff.
I want John Legend to sing at my wedding.
Always staying focused is something that’s been very tough for me. I’m still working on it.
I want to play my best tennis at the Grand Slams.
When I’m sitting at home in the off season and I don’t have anything to do, I watch tennis on my computer. It’s kind of boring. It’s something to do.
The media has dubbed me as someone who can only get up for the big tournaments, and that is not who I want to be.
