Tinne : “It’s always a good win and I’m happy.

“I’ve never seen Amina before or heard of her before, so it’s always a bit tricky playing those players, especially if they’re Egyptian. But I managed to deal with her throughout the match better and better and found solutions to her shots. I’m happy to be in round three and to have Greg [Gaultier] in my corner always helps.

“It’s always hard against SJ, she knows how to stop your movement, which is always annoying. We always have very close and tough battles, it’s one I’m looking forward to, it will be tough one and it will be on the glass as well, which is nice. SJ is always hungry for the win, so I’ll have to be on my toes from the beginning, get stuck in for the whole match and hopefully it will go in my favour.

“I’m very excited to get going on the glass court, I’ve seen some nice pictures and videos from the glass court and it looks very cool. It’s always a different match and style, but I do like it, so I’m looking forward to it.”
