At the end of this encounter, Naomi questioned about the injury Naomi declared “I could feel better, but I cannot complain since I won the match […] It has been very little time since that I forfeited for the Cincinnati final. I kicked the ball a bit on Sunday and the leg was going pretty well. It was a little sore, but it was going pretty well. But during the match, it got a little worse. I think I’m missing a bit of recovery time.”
This Tuesday, Naomi will face the Italian Camila Giorgi (28) 30th in the world (WTA ranking) saying of her opponent “[…] I like to play with this type of opponent, who hits every ball. It’s more fun to have someone face to face who also takes charge of the game […] She does everything very quickly and I think it will be very interesting […]”
