Will Elise Mertens still take action in November? After her elimination in the quarterfinals at the WTA tournament in Ostrava, she is hesitant to immediately focus on the new season, which starts in Australia.
Just like in the quarter-finals of the US Open, Elise Mertens bumped into Victoria Azarenka in Ostrava. But she left the field feeling better after her elimination in the quarter-finals in the Czech Republic.
“It was clearly a difficult game”, Mertens responded. “Azarenka is one of the strongest opponents on the track at the moment. In the first set I felt that I had found some solutions for her game. I tried to play more aggressively and come to the net a little more.”
“It was a better game than at the US Open. And I am happy about that, because it means that I learned from my mistakes. Even if that was not enough for the victory.”
Mertens: “No decisions made yet”
Mertens doubles even further in Ostrava, but doubts whether she played her last singles match of 2020. She is still registered for the WTA tournament in Linz (November 9-15), but is not sure if she will be there.
“I have not made a decision about that yet. Given the place of the tournament on the calendar, there is a risk that my preparation for next season will be disrupted”, Mertens explained.
“Especially since I will have to travel to Australia much earlier than expected, due to the two-week quarantine imposed by the authorities. I have yet to discuss it with Robbe (Ceyssens, her coach) and my physical coach.”
