It’s no secret: Caroline Garcia will have high ambitions in 2023. Semi-finalist of the US Open and above all winner of the WTA Finals in 2022, the Lyon native has rediscovered her best tennis and is now very confident. After winning the Masters, her objectives are logically oriented towards the Grand Slam tournaments. Speaking to Eurosport, Caro Garcia talked about her state of mind before the 2023 season. As a reminder, the Frenchwoman will play the United Cup and then the WTA 250 in Adelaide 2 before turning to the Australian Open, the first major objective of the year.
“Trying to win the biggest titles is what fuels my motivation,” she said. “That’s the main reason why I train every day. Of course, the Masters is very important, it shows me what I can do, but I think my game can still improve. I feel that I am capable of achieving greater things. After reaching the semifinals of the US Open and winning the WTA Finals, winning a Grand Slam becomes a concrete, tangible dream, even if there is still a long way to go. I still have seven matches to win to get a Grand Slam. The road is not shorter now that I’ve won the Masters, but I think it makes me even more confident that it’s not impossible. It shows me that I am capable of going for a Grand Slam title. It’s going to be a tough couple of weeks in a lot of areas, that’s for sure, but I have the style and the level of play to do it. I now know how to handle the bad days. That doesn’t mean I’ll be able to beat my opponent on that day, but I have the skills to do it and I’m much more confident.”
