An unexpected success, in form and above all in substance. Out of the top forty players in the world in the middle of the season, forced to play the decisive game in the play-off with Daria Kasatkina in the groups. After Maria Sakkari, who in Group B had not lost a single set at the same time, Caroline Garcia wins a purely masculine game against Aryna Sabalenka, who leaves her service on the street only in one case, catches the most precious pearl in her career and sits down on the fourth step of the ranking.
During the interview given to the Tennis Channel after her victory, the French tennis player obviously did not hide the emotion and did not set limits for the future.
Caroline Garcia after WTA Finals victory: "Now things are clearer"
She said: "I think it's difficult to describe all the emotion right now.
We played a very intense final, mentally and physically. I have taken advantage of the few opportunities I have had and I have not been swayed by negative thoughts, so I can only be very proud of what I have done. I knew staying calm was going to be one of the most important things."
French tennis player obviously did not hide the emotion
Garcia explained how the slightly slower surfaces are perfect for his tennis, but above all what it means to represent France and above all herself: "I think improving is always the most important thing in this game.
A couple of years I didn't do it with my team and obviously I didn't enjoy it. Yes, today I played a very solid match against a very strong opponent, but there are still many things I can improve in my tennis and that the match against Iga this week they taught me.
This is obviously a very important phase of my career: my goal has always been to win a Grand Slam tournament, but at this moment things are finally clearer to me and I will do everything to succeed."
