Canarian tennis player Carla Suárez, who will represent Spain this week in the final of the Billie Jean King Cup in Prague, a tournament of nations with which she says goodbye to the professional circuit, dreams of a victory that would be the “finishing touch” to its trajectory. “Winning a competition like this would be very special, a farewell, a finishing touch to so many years of career, although it is not only that, “the player recalled to EFE during the press conference before the start of the tournament.
Surrounded by the team captain, Anabel Medina, and the rest of the quintet representing Spain, Suárez recalled the collective value of the trophy. “It is a team competition that you share with all the teammates, and this is much more special than winning an individual, “said the 33-year-old. After returning to training, after the cancer that put her immune system to the test, the Canary Islands wants to be one of the strongholds of her team. “There are many years here. I have a lot of experience and well I will try to contribute everything I have learned in these years,” he said.
Today Carla put the accent on the preparation before the tournament: “That the girls feel good, that in each training we are concentrated, we give one hundred percent”. And, as he recalled, “good preparation is always better, they have more options to get a good result at the weekend. Now with a new format, let’s see how we adapt.” At the moment, the training sessions at the O2 Arena in Prague are working and the Canary Islands are available for Monday’s crossing against Slovakia. “The ‘training sessions’ are going well for us. If I am here in the team it is because I am available, if Anabel really needs it, she knows that she can count on me.“, he added.
