Paula Badosa revealed at the press conference after her triumph against Belinda Bencic in the quarterfinals of the Mutua Madrid Open that she had congratulated her Gerard Piqué. “He wrote to me yesterday. He is a great tennis fan, he is very happy and I thank him because I am a Barça fan. I have always followed him and I am excited,” said the 23-year-old tennis player.

“I did not expect it at all, and I am very proud to have overcome difficult moments this week. It is the best moment of my career, sure, but tomorrow I will play again and I cannot celebrate much,” explained Badosa. “I have kissed the ground because I am at home, I love the land … it has been my way of celebrating it,” he added.

The semifinalist of the Madrid WTA 1,000 told who she remembered when winning Bencic: “From my team, Javi Martí and David Antona, my physical trainer that I don’t name much. Physically, before I would not have endured all these games with the tension and emotions that I am experiencing. Of all the people who have contributed a lot to me during these years, my first coach, who died a while ago, I owe him many things who gave me as a little girl and introduced me to this world, and from Javi, who took me at a very difficult time “.
