Van Uytvanck: “Always nice to have a tournament to begin”

Alison Van Uytvanck (WTA 46) started Tuesday strong at Roland-Garros. In 52 minutes, brushing them with the Australian Isabelle Wallace (WTA 245) with 6-1 and 6-0 of the job. “It is always nice to have a tournament to start”, said the 24-year-old Flemish-Brabant. “I felt good on the track and had immediately the right level to deal with it.”

“To say that it is not more than a workout, it is a bit exaggerated. When a match is always a bit of stress look. I knew that they nervous than I was. After all, I was the more experienced player.”

In the second round Of Uytvank with the German Julia Görges (WTA-11) is a bigger challenge. In 2015 reached Van Uytvanck in the quarter-finals (fifth round). There wants, they’re still not thinking about it. “In the second round will be waiting for me already in a difficult competition. Görges serving very well, but her return is less. It is a good player. Clay is not her specialty. On hardcourt last year I of her lost, but only after I have three or four match balls not used. I realize that it is not self-evident. In any case, I am ready and I will have to go to extremes.”
