Jasmine Paolini: "Two crazy weeks but it è not over yet"

Here are the statements made to the microphones of Eurosport International by Jasmine Paolini after she was decisively beaten in the final of the Roland Garros women’s singles 6-2 6-1 by Polish world number 1 Iga Swiatek.

“It ès not over yet, there’s still tomorrow (referring to the final of the women’s doubles that she will play paired with Sara Errani, ed.), but it’s been a crazy two weeks, I played tennis I think at a high level and I take home good memories. Today I knew it was going to be a very difficult match and playing against Iga è right now the biggest challenge there is in our sport.”

“If they had told me two weeks ago that I would make it to the final at Roland Garros I wouldn’t have believed it so I guess I have to be happy. Today my parents were there and they deserved this satisfaction too. As for the rise of Italian women’s tennis, I always try to do the best I can and I hope to take many more satisfactions”.

Jasmine Paolini, 28-year-old from Bagni Di Lucca, Tuscany, è the fifth Italian to enter the top 10 of the world rankings after Flavia Pennetta, Francesca Schiavone, Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci: on Monday she will rise to world number 7. She also è was the third Italian player to reach the final at Roland Garros after Schiavone, who won in 2010 and lost in 2011, and Errani, who lost in 2012.
