“So who could I potentially develop a great rivalry with over the next 10 or 15 years? I don’t know for sure, there are a lot of players who you could point to,” she added.
“Emma is definitely one – I think we showed that in our match, which I think was a decent quality for the most part – while there is also Iga Swiatek and Leylah Fernandez, who are a similar age.
“The Fruhvirtova sisters – Linda who is 17 and Brenda who is 15 – are just starting their careers and seem to have opportunities to do something great in the game, too. Another young player who has impressed me is Diana Shnaider, who is the same age as me.”
