  • Why you first chose your sport: I was active in four different sports at the same time: gymnastics, swimming, track and field, and tennis of course. I have competed actively in all of them and most of the time the tournaments were around the same dates, which meant I had to make a choice. Undoubtedly, I chose tennis every time, and that’s how I started realizing that I loved playing tennis more than anything
