Ukrainian tennis player Katarina Zavacka told about the performance at the tournament in AIX-EN-Provence in the South of France.
“It’s a small tournament, which is probably held by the French Federation. There is no real club, just have two courts, a stringer, a screen showing the score, there are judges.
Also there is a special rule: you can only touch your balls and the opponent his balls need to pass the racket and not to touch them with your hands. Such tournaments will go a whole summer. Well, there is match practice and a small earnings too.
For the match, they give you 100 euros for a win is € 200. AIX-EN-Provence is about 1.5 hours drive from Cannes. It’s not far and it is good that you can play a few matches. Last 3 months I trained only with boys, so playing the first match with a girl, everything was very, very different,” said Katherine.
Note that Zavacka played two match in this competition (1-1).
