Your mother has never actually seen you play tennis live because she gets so nervous. Do you think she’ll ever change her mind?
I’ve asked her many times. She always answers, “No, I have my life, and I don’t want to change,” and also she really doesn’t enjoy the sport. So even after the French Open, I didn’t call her. I sent a text message saying, “I’m good. Now in Paris, on my way back to Munich.” And she said, “I heard you won a tournament.”
Is she proud of you?
I think so. But sometimes she doesn’t want to show it.
