I am a player who performs very well with the reverse and In this type of surfaces it benefits me a little, something that does not happen on clay or on slow courts where the ball barely bounces, today I felt very good on the court and I hope in the next matches to be able to certify the pass to the semifinals. I have two hard stones on the way for it. "

This tournament has a very complicated system, but this victory has been key to having options for my pass to the semifinals. Right now I feel very good, but here every game acquires vital importance. If I lose everything on Tuesday, it will be open again and I will have to do my best to win on Thursday. All I have left is to rest well for tomorrow, train hard and stay focused for the next matches . It's no use thinking about the title. "
Mladenovic was proclaimed champion of Fed Cup: "I couldn't see their matches today because they were very early and I didn't want to disturb my preparation (laughs).

Win a competition like the Fed Cup is within reach of very few tennis players and I am super proud of it because it has succeeded. It has been the finishing touch to a great season for her. "
Next match against Novak Djokovic: "At the moment he is the most fit tennis player on the circuit. He has already shown what he is capable of doing in Paris-Bercy, where despite not having played at his best level he was victorious quite easily.
