home, she had to be nervous,” Dario Gioffre said

the grand slams and we know that she can play in 2024 all the grand slams,” the coach highlighted.
“It is very exciting to work with her because the variation in her game is so good. Definitely, she is a player that is exciting, that has a lovely game, she is also probably fit. Definitely she is great project,” he acknowledged.
