I started to feel unwell at the beginning of the second set, after two or three games. I was feeling dizzy like I couldn't coordinate what my legs and what my hands were doing. I felt like a beginner out there.
It hurt a bit, ... I thought we were in Switzerland. I played my heart out all match, and all I heard were people cheering 'Flavia' and 'Italy.' They got behind me in the second set, but I wish they'd been with me from the start.
I was just off, and she was all over me. She just took advantage and didn't let it go. I had the feeling when I rally with her, I was getting tired and pushed back too much, just too much power. It's really one of the rare ones where there was no match at all. I don't really know what happened to me.
Other tournaments are even more important to me personally because I, in the past, have never played really good here. But when I look at the draw and I see how big this event is, I, yeah, am a little bit frustrated.
