Kiki, amid all the uncertainties is ‘patient and positive’ to thrive on the tennis court.
“When you’re a competitor, that’s what you live for. They’re even hoping to have crowds at Roland, which is very motivating,” Mladenovic told Roland Garros’ website.
She added, “I never thought for a second that everything would be canceled in 2020. There’s still a lot of uncertainty on the health front, of course, and tennis is a sport that goes from venue to venue, with players who come from all over the world. But the feeling I get in here in Nice is that it’s the start of something. It’s all about being patient and positive. Those are the two keywords for me right now.”
