Spanish tennis player Sara Sorribes feels “very strong physically and mentally”, and that she is “working hard” to give her best on the courts, just as she looks “prepared” and will fight “until the end” in the Mutua Madrid Open, a tournament in which she achieved her best result in a WTA 1000, with the quarterfinals reached in 2022.

Sara Sorribes, number 51 in the WTA ranking, will be one of the main Spanish assets in this Mutua Madrid Open. The Castellón native faces the tournament after a discreet start to the year, in which her best result to date is the second round in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Bogotá.

“I am aware that this situation can be reversed at any time, so my goal is to continue working and making an effort as I have been doing in recent seasons. I am very focused on the day to day and on improving those things that make me fail in some of matches,” said the current Spanish number one in the ranking in an interview facilitated this Monday by her sponsor Nara Seguros.

Sorribes stated that when playing in Spain, “the pressure is much greater.” “Having your people close often gives you that drive to continue when things are not going well at all,” remarked the woman from Castellón, who “really wants to play” at the Caja Mágica because the Mutua Madrid Open “is one of the most important tournaments of the season”.

The tennis player prefers not to set expectations, but she is clear that she feels “very strong physically and mentally”, and that she is “working hard” to be able to give her best on the courts. Regarding playing on clay, the WTA number 51 highlighted “resistance and the ability to move well.” “Playing on clay requires a lot of energy, and you have to keep in mind that the bounce of the ball is irregular, so adapting to it is also crucial in matches,” she confessed.

“I feel prepared and I will fight until the end,” she stressed when asked who she would like to face in the Caja Mágica. Finally, she advised young tennis players who want to follow in her footsteps to “be constant, but above all to enjoy.”

“Many times we are so focused on the games and achieving goals that we forget to enjoy ourselves, and that is also part of the process and personal and professional growth,” said the Castellón native, who also recommended that they “surround themselves with the right people.” , people you trust and who help you give your best.”
