For sure she was hitting the ball really hard, so I had to stay aggressive where I could and where I couldn’t I was just trying to get the ball back. In the end my coach was there to cool me down a little bit. It was really nice to get the support from that one stand here. Thanks a lot for that. Hopefully you will be there tomorrow as well», – Kiki said.
