15-year-old Ukrainian shared his emotions after the third round of the Australian Open.

Young Ukrainian tennis player Marta Kostyuk commented on his victory in the match of the second round of the Australian Open against local athlete Olivia Rogowska.

“I’m happy, just happy. Today on the court I felt very bad, it was hot, but I was able to go through it. It seems that every year I put some records or repeat them, so I’m cool with this.

Ivan Ljubicic always helps me, watching my matches, and then they said that I was doing wrong, even when I won (laughs). He hands me his experience, and that’s great, but Roger… I talked to him twice, I think, but not like this: “hi, how are you doing?” and that’s it.

My attitude in tennis, compared to my childhood, has changed. You can’t be a perfectionist in tennis, because you’re wrong in every draw. Just need to deal with it, otherwise you end up in a mental hospital (laughs).

If I want to play again in the Arena, Margaret Court? Of course, I liked this court (smiling),” said March, in the post-match interview on the court.

Note that the next opponent is the young sensation will be 4th-seeded Elina Svitolina.
