Iga explains at a press conference why Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal They take all the spotlight, how he has evolved in terms of mentality and his objectives in Rome.

“I’m happy with the way I played in general, maybe without counting the start of the second set. I’m happy to have been able to overcome it, I knew what I wanted to improve. In the end, I’m happy to have won in two sets. I think that this drop is due to my energy level and my state at that moment, I got a little distracted. I returned to my level from the first set and that was enough to have control again,” explains the Pole at a press conference.

All the focuses on Nadal and Djokovic

“Well, I think there is some attention on me, but I totally understand why Rafa and Novak have so many fans. It’s not that I’m jealous or anything like that. It’s probably Rafa’s last time in Rome. I understand why people “The focus is on him, and Novak is obviously one of the best of all time, too. I don’t really understand the question.”

The defense of points

“I remember last year I missed Miami and I thought I had to catch up in terms of points. Now I feel like I’m in a different place. I still focus on the same things, but last year I was more stressed and nervous, I felt more pressure. Now I focus on enjoying everything a little more.”

Step by Step

“As always, going step by step is the best. There is still a lot left and I need to concentrate on what I have to concentrate on. Obviously, it is difficult to win Madrid and Rome, especially when you barely have time to adapt to the conditions if you play well in Madrid” .
