“I feel like I deserve second place. Now I’m thinking about being number one. There is a long way to go to catch up with Iga Swiatek, but it is not impossible.
I will do my best to catch up with her. If I don’t do it this year, I hope I can do it early next year. I feel like I deserve to be number two, but to be number one you have to play at an even higher level. And I feel like I really deserve it. For me, the most important thing is to reach the same level at which Iga is playing now, having won 36 matches in a row and won six titles, ”the BBC Tunisian athlete quotes.
