“When I started to play tennis, I didn’t think I would be a professional tennis player,” the 21-year-old Czech said Sunday. “So for me to win Wimbledon, (the year-end) Championships, Fed Cup, it wasn’t my dream. But it’s very nice.
“If I maybe can be No. 1, it will be very nice, too, of course.”
Despite not winning a Grand Slam title, Caroline Wozniacki holds the top spot because of her tournament victories and ranking points. She must reach at least the fourth round at the Australian Open to have a chance of staying there.
“I had a lot of press and a lot of media. I had to improve my English,” she said. “I’m still little bit nervous, but it’s much better.”
“It’s really strange for me,” Kvitova said of the fame. “I’m already get used to (it). I mean, it’s the part of our life. We have to live with this.”
A troublesome foot injury means the 30-year-old Hewitt’s ranking has slipped to No. 186. He needed a wild card just to compete in Melbourne, but said his approach hasn’t differed from any of his other 50 Grand Slam tournaments.
“When I come to Grand Slams or big tournaments anyway, you’re sort of in your own bubble a little bit,” Hewitt said Sunday. “You’re not worried about the outside talk or what it’s really about. You’re doing everything in your power just to be as ready as possible.”View Entire Story
