Guest on Players’ Voice podcast on Eurosport, Caroline Garcia once again looked back on her incredible season marked by a semi-final at the US Open and a victory over the Masters. Aware of having learned a lot about himself thanks to injuries and time spent away from the courts, the Lyonnaise insisted on the concept of pleasure.
“I have learned a lot about myself this year. My injury allowed me to. This break with tennis was an opportunity to learn as a woman, as a person. You gain experience, you mature over the years. In relation to everyday tennis, I learned to take advantage of having a day off, that it is part of training, that it was good to take your mind off things. I realized that if I occasionally like to eat a pizza the day before a game, it might be better to go and eat it than to think about it all evening and all night. With my injury, I realized that winning a title obviously gives you a different feeling, but winning a first round at the US Open, or a quarterfinal or a first round in a 250 also generates emotion and joy. For the day, for the next day. »
