“It’s good that she won, usually after a short break you doubt yourself. A slight jitter may begin. Daria was considered the favorite in this match; she is capable and talented. The situation in front of the net is difficult, there are a lot of strong players.
— Can we call her the favorite of the tournament?
— There are a lot of people playing there, she has her place and she is talented, but we have to wait now, everyone wants to win. She can win the tournament, she has victories over everyone, but the main thing is that she stays in shape and goes to the end in good shape,” Morozova told .
In the next round, the 13th racket in the world will face the Greek Despina Papamikhail.
