Belinda Bencic and Petra Kvitova embrace at the net after the women's final of the 2019 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
“It’s been incredible beating all these players [four players within the top 9]. I wouldn’t have thought that before this tournament… It gives me a lot of confidence, for sure.”
“Tennis has been an escape from other things happening in my life. It’s been a difficult, to be honest, to handle everything. But I’m glad I can still play tennis. This is a big joy.”
Q. How special is this partnership? Do you think of going through the whole season, Grand Slams?
HSIEH SU-WEI: Don’t leave me!
BARBORA STRYCOVA: So I won’t leave her (laughter). Looks like a very good way. You can talk also (to Su-Wei).
HSIEH SU-WEI: I’m happy to play together. We always enjoy. I mean, last week was tough, but I was very positive. I don’t really worry about it. We try really hard this week to improve little bit than last week. We do better and better.
It is very good combination what we do. We covering. We are running everywhere. Was pretty fun. Always fight. Partner always fighting with you.
BARBORA STRYCOVA: Not with her, but on court (laughter).
