VERONIKA KUDERMETOVA ABOUT HER WIN OVER KAMILLA RAKHIMOVA AND HER NEXT OPPONENT DARIA KASATKINA
The 2nd seed of St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy 2021 Veronika Kudermetova rallied to beat Kamilla Rakhimova who broke through to the main draw coming off the qualifications – 7/5, 3/6, 7/6(5).
The tennis players spent on court 2 hrs and 53 mins and only the tie-break of the 3rd set could determine the winner.
“Credit to her, Kamilla played a great match, she was fighting for every point. It was a really tough match for me. I had a little bit more experience and in the tie-break I really tried to play more aggressive than before and I think that was the key”.
“Of course it’s tough, I’m playing my first match and she’s already played three matches so she’s more conditioned than me but now I feel really confident because I played a long match and I think tomorrow I’ll play much better than today”. Talking about the next opponent Daria Kasatkina Veronika said: “We played a lot of times in juniors. I don’t remember when we played last time – it’s a long time ago – but I’m really looking forward to play against her”.
