I mean, what can I say? Aryna had a great season, and Elena too. We have different styles of play, we have different personalities. So there’s not a pretty obvious thing that we’re more consistent about, but we are and I guess we’re just working hard.”In the third round of the WTA 1000 in Montreal, Iga will face another Czech tennis player, Karolina Muchova: it will be the second challenge of the year, after that at the Roland Garros.
