How do i feel? I can't explain it, it's hard to describe this, I'm winning several consecutive tournaments and it's incredible. I want to continue on this path and am happy to maintain a solid and worry-free game.
Last year in this period was tough, this year is already different and I can only say that I am proud of myself. After the match point I felt a great relief, I knew that today was not an easy challenge.

In the second set I suffered more and Ons wanted to do well but in the end I took the victory home.
My reaction after winning the title was exciting. Roland Garros? I don't want pressure, I think I will do as I have done here, I will play match after match and I will do that throughout the next tournaments. The pressure is easier to bear than in the past, and I am gaining experience in all of this.
Is it fun to win five titles in a row? Of course yes (laughs). In the last two matches I felt solid and I felt that my game was excellent." The tennis player then continued about her winning streak: "How long will the winning streak last? Good question, I don't think anyone really knows.
I don't know why at one point Ons played several dropshots and I didn't know how to move, she is anyway. a very nice tennis player and brings in the atmosphere in the WTA Tour."
