Answering to a question as to whether she was happy with her performance she said, “I am happy that I played the finals, but at the same time not happy with the result. A lot to learn, and also good that I played the finals and came back stronger. Overall, I think I used the wrong strategy and it didn’t work out well for me but I learned a lot from that match.”
On whether Covid affected her Training she replied, “I don’t think it has affected my game because I was training at home and it was fine. After lockdown, it took some time for me to make a comeback. We were happy to be back on court and everything was fine.”
On Facing Her Rio Olympic final competitor Carolina Marin, she replied “Carolina Marin is an aggressive player and she is playing well. It was her day. She is not an easy player. She is very aggressive. We had to be ready for everything — drops or smashes. I think I used the wrong strategy but the next time I play against her, I would use the right strategy and it would be a different one.”
