"Definitely eight years ago I was young, I was already won my Wimbledon title, and I was kind of favorite and played and I lost to Maria, which she won the tournament. So for me, that time was a lot of pressure on me, and even I didn't play like the best on clay," the two-time Grand Slam winner added.
"I shot 200 times every day. These six years helped a lot in developing my fundamentals," she commented.
"There needs to be some differences, but I am absolutely convinced that even under these circumstances, there will still be fantastic games. We will adapt, we will also be supported with the organizing committee in anything we need to do to make sure that athletics is the center stage of the Olympic Games."

"We improved our ball movement with the match going deep. Players had expected to win this match through an easy route. After halftime adjustment, we had a different look in the second half," said Zhejiang coach Gu Jiaqing.
The result came less than two days after Vasco sacked manager Ramon Menezes and named their under-20 coach Alexandre Grasseli as his interim replacement. Enditem
