Caroline Garcia, qualified for the 3rd round of the US Open: “Progress compared to the first match”

“How do you analyze your clear victory against Anna Kalinskaya (6-3, 6-1) in the second round of the US Open?
I am really super happy with my match and my victory. It was really a very solid match. I got into it fine. I manage to break her entry and put a lot of pressure on her. You had to be dynamic. She also strikes and takes the ball quite early so I had to manage to impose my game. There are obviously a lot of positives. Progress has been made from the first game. There are always things to improve, that’s the charm of tennis. Today (Wednesday)it was a good day for me on the court.

“(about his serve) It’s a very important point in my game, it gives confidence to be solid in these first two matches. Other challenges are coming, I will need them”

Everything looks simple for you on the court right now. Is this how you feel?
No, still not, that would be good, but it doesn’t happen by itself either! It’s a lot in the preparation, the state of mind, the identity and the objectives. Concentration point by point on strengths, on what I want to do, what I want to continue doing. She put a hellish pace on her service games where she literally took three seconds so it was a constant challenge. It was good to be able to take every opportunity today.

You haven’t conceded a single break point since the start of the tournament. Are you particularly confident in the service?
Yes it’s good. It’s funny, in the diagonal equality, I couldn’t serve outside today. I think I can still improve on that. That’s great. It’s a very important point in my game, it gives confidence to be solid in these first two matches. Other challenges are coming, I will need them in other matches. It’s good that he is there. »
