I’ve really ramped up from the start of the week and it’s a match that I had a lot of fun playing and I’m really happy to be in the final. “Playing in her city, Caroline Garcia does not shun the pleasure of being able to play in front of her relatives. “Tennis is a sport where we play around the world and often very far away so there is never anyone who can come to see you, she recalled. Here, it’s a bit of luck that I have. The family comes, my grandmother comes every day since the beginning of the week. I love sharing so it’s obviously very nice to hear them in the stands. There are friends, those who are from here, from Paris. They make the ‘effort’ to come to be able to experience this with me and that means a lot. »
