The current British number one tennis player Johanna Konta is strongly looking forward to winning the tournament irrespective of the pandemic playing havoc with lives all around.
World No.14 Johanna Konta made into the semi-finals at the Championships in 2017. However, she still looks pretty optimistic about bagging Wimbledon that unfortunately got canceled owing to the COVID19 threat worldwide. She is certainly an outstanding player who featured in the last four at the Australian as well as the French Open Tennis Tournaments.
Although Konta spent most of her time during the lockdown with her boyfriend and with their two cute dogs she didn’t miss out on the spark to win the ever-cherished Grand Slam title. She opines that her determination and hard work will pave for her dreams to come true soon.
“I love playing at Wimbledon and it has been my goal to win ever since I was a little girl,” she told the Hello Magazine in an interview. “I feel sad that I won’t be competing this year, but it hasn’t altered my determination to be a Grand Slam champion. I’ll never stop striving for that.” She added.
“I’ve Put My Disappointment Aside Now”- Johanna Konta
There is no denying to the fact that all sports and pre-scheduled games around the world are suffering badly due to the COVID19 outbreak. In such a scenario it is not easy for players to stay motivated and headstrong all the time.
Interestingly tennis is a bit lesser blown up as compared to the Olympics which has been shelved for about a year. Hence Johanna feels tennis players are luckier than the rest. She now aims to bring home a tennis gold and make her country feel proud again.
“As for the Olympics being postponed, I’ve put my disappointment aside now. How I feel pales in comparison to the athletes who train for it in a four-year cycle. It must be especially hard for them to have to wait another year.” She told.
“Tennis players are in a more fortunate position because we have four big annual events.”– Johanna Konta.
