Australian Open > Caroline Garcia: “I gave in to panic and stress”

Qualified for the second week of the Australian Open after a narrow victory against the German Laura Siegemund this Saturday morning (1−6, 6–3, 6–3)Caroline Garcia came back during an interview with the FFT on this complicated but perhaps life-saving part for the rest of her tournament.

“She started the match well, I was a little unlucky at the start and then I got frustrated quite quickly, quite quickly irritated. I couldn’t really find my rhythm and I gave in to panic and stress a little. It cost me the first set and it could have cost me a lot more. I managed to calm down a bit, try to play a little less aggressive and accept the conditions of the day and try to fight, do something different for the opponent so that they can get their match. And it was really important to keep fighting, even though I wasn’t playing very good tennis.”explained the French who will face the Polish Magda Linette for a place in the quarterfinals.
