Paris – Tennis player Barbora Krejčíková is sure that she will leave Roland Garros with a trophy. After today’s victory in the semifinals, he will play the first singles slam final in Paris and either win the Suzanne Lenglen Cup for the triumph or a commemorative plate for the finalist.
“I like to take something from tournaments and take home some memory,” Krejčíková smiled at an online press conference. “Whether it’s a plate or a cup, it’ll be fine. I’ll kick to the last ball and I hope it could work out for that cup. That would be nice.”
Progression to the final Krejčíková won in a match with Maria Sakkari. In the third set, she turned away the Greek swordfish during her service and managed the challenging ending. “We were really pulling. It was an amazing match, probably the best on tour this year. For Maria, I’m sorry that only one of us could win. But I’m glad that I won and that I will play the finals,” said the 25-year-old Czech .
The tailors were running out of energy after difficult exchanges. “By the end, I didn’t know what the score was at all. I was just thinking: she’s serving, turn her around somewhere and try to put the winner,” she described her condition, adding: “But it’s indescribable how I play now, how I’m doing well. “
For whatever score, she looked calm. “I wasn’t nervous about the whole match,” she said, thanking her father for her nature. “I’m lucky to have it in my genes. He’s so calm too. It’s important to stay calm. Ivan Lendl was all stony when he played, and how well he played. I can stay calm inside. As I look on the court, that’s how I am and inside. And I think the other girls must mind. “
There was a controversy during the fourth swordball of the Czech tennis player. The line judge announced the car, but after checking the main one, he turned the statement and Krejčíková had to continue playing instead of celebrating the promotion. “I said, no no no. At that moment I thought it was aut. But what can I do? The umpire referee saw the ball as good and I can’t do anything about it. I can’t call anyone, I can’t change his mind,” she said. she added, “So I said to myself: cool, the ball will be repeated and you need to work and fight on.”
After the match, she mentioned the late Jana Novotná, her former coach and mentor. But during the match, he concentrates on tennis. “I only have another steak in my head, another ball, I’m wondering where I’m going to pass, which stroke to play and where to place it,” Krejčíková said.
She is very happy that she also has support from Czech legends. Martina Navrátilová and Jan Kodeš applauded her courage in the auditorium and backstage. “It’s an honor when you get a message from Mr. Kodeš or Martina and they want to help you. They are very nice to you, pleasant, they want to give you confidence, energy. It’s beautiful and I really appreciate it,” she said. She admitted that she did not remember their matches. “But I’ve always admired them for what they did for tennis, how they did.”
On Friday, Krejčíková will not breathe too much. He will start with the doubles semifinal with Kateřina Siniaková from 13:00. “So I hope to play well and, above all, do something. The dirt fits me. I don’t mind at all that I don’t have days off. Maybe I’ll prepare well and be ready for the finals.”
She didn’t want to think about her opponent in Saturday’s title fight. But she knows that Russia’s debutante in the grand slam final Anastasia Pavlyuchenko is also waiting for her. “She’s great, very experienced and she has to roll when she’s in the final. I’m just going to enjoy it, because I never expected to get this far in the tournament. I’ll go there and fight until the end,” Krejčíková promised.
