Not the best start to the season, also thanks to a bit of bad luck with the draws that saw her face and lose twice in a row with the Spanish Paula Badosa, both in Sydney and Melbourne at the Australian Open. Ajila Tomljanovic is back to talk and tell about her life as a professional player, not even hiding on her current relationship with the blue tennis player Matteo Berrettini.
The Australian made very interesting statements in an interview with Tennis.com: “My tennis life is full of adventures, good times and bad. Nothing good comes without going through all the bad. It’s like a roller coaster, that’s why I love it.
Something different happens every day and I try to enjoy it as much as possible, because I won’t be able to play for a long time. The older I get, the more I appreciate what I do.”

The 28-year-old girl added: “Something I like about this sport is that literally every week there is a new opportunity.
That’s what I tell myself when things get complicated, that I will always have a chance to do better. My tennis is pretty aggressive. I’m working on improving it even more. I want to be the one who takes the initiative on the court.”
About her team: “Growing up my team has always been my family. My father has been traveling with me for as long as I can remember. I would say my personality remains the same when I’m on the pitch. I’m a very stubborn and competitive person.”
The goals: “Entering this new year I think my goals haven’t changed much. I want to have new experiences, which means doing better than previous years. The intent is just to improve,” said the Zagreb native. On Berrettini: “He is very loyal, he always supports me.
I like having a partner from the same industry because we travel to the same place many times, we enjoy more time together. I always hope to win on the same day, so we don’t have to pretend we’re not happy,” she concluded.
