Speaking of the achievement after the game, Zhang Shuai said: for Chinese players or Asian players, its really hard to achieve such a result on clay because we always perform well on other fields. This time I think Im trying my best to compete with my opponent and I dont think much about it. Even off the field, Im relaxed. After all, there are not many matches this year. One game is one game
Zhang Shuai also revealed that he only got a European visa at the last minute, and he almost couldnt participate in the French Open, so he was very lucky to be able to play in the top 16 all the way.
Before I got my visa, I had been training on the hard court of the U.S. Open, training and waiting. When the visa came down at the last minute, he flew to Rome and was quarantined for 24 hours. I have only one hour of training before the first French Open Zhang Shuai recalled.
So thank you very much for the help of French Open, French Net Association, WTA and French embassy. Zhang Shuai said bluntly, otherwise, I cant even participate in the competition.
It is worth mentioning that before the French Open, Zhang Shuai played Birrell in Strasbourg last week, when she also won two sets. After the game, Zhang Shuai also praised the young players performance, and firmly believed that she will harvest a bright future.
Zhang Shuais opponent in the fourth round will be the winner between No.7 seed kovitova and Fernandez.
