After the match, Genie said:
“I didn’t feel like I was playing all that well so I’m just happy that I was able to keep myself collected in the third and find a way. She played well, you know. I think she’s young – I don’t know if she’s an up-and-comer or what – but she was serve and volleying, she was slicing, she was mixing it up, so that was tricky but I was able to handle that in the third. You know what, I’d just be proud of myself for going through the matches. I have a match tomorrow so that’s all I’m worried about right now… I’ve learnt a lot and just grateful to be playing tennis.”
