M. TREVISAN/A. Sasnovich
THE MODERATOR: Congratulations. Two years later you are back in the quarterfinals of Roland Garros. How are you feeling right now?
MARTINA TREVISAN: Thank you, first of all. Right now I'm very tired, but I'm so happy, so this is the important thing. Today it was very tough and difficult match, because she's playing very well, and she has incredible backhand. With my forehand, it wasn't easy to hit.
But, I mean, I'm in the quarterfinals, so I'm so happy (smiling). Not more important.
THE MODERATOR: Questions in English.
Q. A great match today. In 2020, that was a magical performance for you to break through and reach the quarterfinals for the first time. Did you think you would be able to do this regularly, do it again at that time?
MARTINA TREVISAN: Last year it wasn't very difficult for me. It was a very -- it was very difficult here for me. But I collected a lot of experience, and positive and negative experience, and at the beginning of this year is that I was dreaming this moment, because in myself, in my head, I see again this moment. I thought to myself, yes, Martina, you can do again. I will like to live again this emotion. I mean, I'm here, so I'm really happy.
Q. Last year when you're having difficulties, how were you able to rebuild your confidence to start to dream again, start to think you could be back here?
MARTINA TREVISAN: Just to keep going. You know, to get up in the morning and even if it was bad moment, negative moment, I went to the club and practice, practice, practice. I think that is the key of my success right now.
Q. You're coming off a title, so it's about nine consecutive wins. Have you ever had a period or stretch in your career that was as good as this one?
MARTINA TREVISAN: I don't think so, no. I don't think so. But I'm enjoying the moment and keep focusing and every practice and believe it.
Q. Finally, can you explain what it is that's clicking right now for you? Is there something in particular that you are doing extremely well?
MARTINA TREVISAN: I think I'm very consistent right now. I'm not making a lot unforced errors. I think this is the key.
When I need to push more, I push more. When I need to stay there and focus, I stay there. So I think this is the key.
