“I think the level and quality I really realised that whilst rewatching it, it was such a cool experience and sometimes you do just rewind and relive the moment and the feelings.
“It’s great to reflect and have that so gradually it sort of sinks in. I am just super proud of the achievement. I am now looking forward. I am not going to cling on to that. I am still hungry for more really.”
The world No 21 is more than happy to be making her debut in Indian Wells, with the 1000-point ATP and WTA event often dubbed the ‘fifth Grand Slam’.
“It’s really nice,” she said, speaking of her experience arriving at the tournament as a new staple of the pro tour.
“All the players are all very friendly. I am still really new on the Tour. It’s pretty cool. To be here in Indian Wells, it’s my first time here, but the desert is beautiful. I feel really grateful I can play at such a nice venue and location and good tournament.”
