After being away from the WTA tour for over 8 months due to injuries, Polona is finally back to professional tennis. Her first comeback tournamnet will be none other than Roland Garros.
Polona has some nice memories of this grand slam; in juniors category she won a doubles title (with Jessica Moore) and in singles reached her best GS result, which was third round in 2010. Polona’s goals for this years’ Roland Garros are a bit moe modest, especially since this will be her first tournament after not being on the tour for that long. In addition, due to lower ranking, Polona will have to play qualifications.
»I’m going to play my first tournament since August last year and it’s going to be Roland Garros, which is my favorite tournament. So, I’m really excited to be back on the court and competing in professional tennis. I’m just really excited to be back and I’m not expecting too much from myself because I know it’s going to take a lot of time to get back to the normal tournament rhytem and I’m just really happy and excited to play my first match.«
