Began to play tennis at the age of 8-9. "I was 8 or 9. It was summer. I had nothing to do. In our city there was a camp for kids to play tennis. Not with real racquets but the small ones. My parents said that if I wanted to try, I should try it. I had tried swimming before and gymnastics and I didn’t really like it. So I said, “Yeah, I want to try it.” I liked it. When I started to play tennis, everybody was telling me, “You are too small. You cannot play good tennis. You don’t have to do that.” But I just loved the game and wanted to do it so I worked really hard.
