Xinhua News Agency, Paris, September 25 (Reporter Xiao Yazhuo) In the third round of the French Open Women's Singles Qualifying Tournament on the 25th, Chinese "little flower" Wang Xinyu lost to Argentina's Podoloska 2:6, 4:6 and missed the race. . In an interview after the game, she said that it is indeed difficult to be affected by the epidemic this year, and the most important goal is to maintain good health.
"There is no way for the epidemic to come, and everyone did not expect it to happen suddenly, especially for our young players, it is like being suddenly pressed the pause button during the season," Wang Xinyu said.
"But if you think about it from a different angle, this may also give yourself a chance to rest and adjust. For example, have more time to do some physical reserves, or to solve some small physical problems."
The last time Wang Xinyu participated in a formal game was in Indian Wells in March. Since then, due to injuries and the impact of the epidemic, she has not played for half a year.
"Because of some injuries on my hands, I have been recovering, and only started practicing some time ago. As the first race, today's results are a good start." Wang Xinyu said.
Now 18-year-old Wang Xinyu has previously achieved impressive results in the Grand Slam youth group competition. In 2018, she won the Australian Open and Wimbledon youth group women's doubles respectively. However, in the adult competition, she had only participated in the first round of the main match at the 2018 Australian Open and the 2019 US Open. This year, Wang Xinyu originally set herself a goal of reaching the top 100 in the world in singles, but considering the current situation, she believes that maintaining health is the first priority now.
"Because it is still very difficult to travel now, I can only play as many games as possible and maintain the state. The most important goal this year is to maintain good health."
Although the journey of the French Open has ended, Wang Xinyu will stay in France for a period of time and participate in the three ITF series in France.
The current French Open Championship will be held from September 27 to October 11. According to the latest epidemic prevention policy requirements, the number of daily audiences will be limited to 1,000 people. (Finish)
