The way the Qatar Open is scheduled, after the tournament in Doha, there will be Indian Wells and other tournaments in America, creating a lot of competition from here and there. Recently, the US Open champion opened up in a press conference about how even Americans face the same scheduling problems, but at the same time, as she is young, she can navigate through it quite calmly.

She said, “Yeah, it’s weird, but also, at the same time, the tour doesn’t revolve around Americans, so I can’t complain about the long flights. It definitely doesn’t revolve around us.” Along with that, she also highlighted how it’s cool to have a lot of tournaments in the US, but at the same time, traveling for 8 hours on flights is not that bad for her.

I think that is where I have the most fun on tour.” 

She was quite open about her stand as an American tennis player, and at the same time, she appreciated the American tennis swing.

After reaching the Abu Dhabi Open’s finals, the Russian tennis player shared her disappointment with how, just after the next day, she had to be in Doha for another tournament. While she rapidly asked how it was not easy for any player to snap fingers and move from one place to another, she had her own set of questions. She said, “I have a question, I don’t know to who, to WTA or the tournaments, like, are you guys trying to make players die, or to get injured often?”

At the same time, she vented out her frustration and highlighted how finishing one tournament a day and going for another one the next day is not an easy task. She stated, “I might have to fly Monday and step on the court the same day, after playing five matches here at the highest level.”

Further, she also apologized for talking about taking things into consideration that might create problems for not only her but for other tennis players too.
