Garbiñe Muguruza spoke to the media on Friday three days after his debut at Roland Garros against the Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk, on Monday. The Spanish, who has had physical problems during the gravel season, hopes to be prepared to give her best in Paris, where she was champion in 2016.

How to get to the tournament: “I have good memories of here, it is a special tournament, but I have not been able to play many matches on clay and it will be difficult. Physically I had to press… I have trained as hard as I could and I hope I am ready. I’m very motivated”

Carla Suarez: “I am very happy to see her here, because she was not sure until the last moment and I pushed her to come. “Come on, Carla,” I said, ‘just go, no expectations, it will be incredible that you are.’ It will be fun for me to see her and sad because it is the last time. Here we have good memories, we played doubles… It is very inspiring that he came ”.

Favorite ?: “I don’t consider myself that way, I prefer to be humble because I haven’t played much on clay and I think zero of those things. I really like this surface, but I don’t see myself as a favorite ”.

How it arrives physically: “My body has not been 100% in the gravel campaign, and it has been difficult to rehabilitate, train, try to reach the competition. A bit frustrating because I like it and wanted to play as much as possible. I have been recovering, I feel better physically and I will have to deal with what I have in the games. I’ve never felt great before a Grand Slam. The key is to try to improve with each game ”.

Injuries: “There is always risk when you have injuries in the same area, I hope I can face the tournament clean of pain.”

Osaka: “I don’t want to get into anyone’s opinions. I consider that my responsibility is to do the press and it is part of you. I think we need the media, although sometimes it is hard and you feel bad. You have to count on them for the good and the bad ”.
