Ana reflects on round one win

Ana reflects on round one win

Overall, Ana was content with her performance during her 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 victory over Croatia's Petra Martic in the first round of the French Open on Sunday.
 
"Obviously it was a bit of an up‑and‑down game today. I started really well, played very aggressive.  And in the second set I kind of let her back in a little bit. She started serving better, going for her shots and mixing up a lot of dropshots and slices.

"Then in the third set I stepped up again. Once I was 5-0 up she started swinging a little more. And I still had chances, still played good tennis, I felt.  But I'm really happy I managed to close the match at 5‑3."

Asked if she had felt nervous while serving at 5-2 in the third set, when she was broken, Ana said: "Really I was going for it at 5-0, 5‑1, 5‑2, and when it got back to 5‑3, I really was a little nervous. 

"I lost it a little bit for a few points. But really managed to keep composed at 0‑30 on my service game.  And it was really big, a big game."
