KATARZYNA KAWA: «FINAL IS A GREAT LESSON FOR ME»
The runner-up of Baltic Open 2019 Katarzyna Kawa from Poland commented on her performance in the finals of the tournament and shared her future goals.
"I think it was a pretty close match and anyone could win it. Anastasia won today, but I hope I will get better and better from such matches and will experience them again soon.
"I had a 5-4 lead in the second set, which was a kind of chance for me. But in this game she played really great shots and I didn't have any chances actually. Everything was super close – it was a little bit of luck and a few lines that decided who was winning.
"I was kind of forced to play lots of drop shots and touch. It's not my game, but I know that I can use it whenever it's needed. It became a really nice match because of that and I'm happy I could be part of that.
Immediate goals:
"My biggest goal is to improve my game and I think that's the key to getting better in the ranking. My goal is to get into the Australian Open main draw next year. That's the goal or the next few months."
On her week:
"I started with a win, 7-6 in the final set tie-break. To come from there all the way to the final feels kind of incredible. It feels like a different tournament but it's still the same one. To get to the final is a great lesson for me – it's a great week for me."
