America’s Amanda Anisimova has revealed that she is ‘feeling good’ after upsetting the world number 14 Liudmila Samsonova in the Australian Open first-round clash.
The first Grand Slam of the year has begun on Sunday where players from all over the world are participating and showcasing their talent at the highest level.
Anisimova, who recently made a return to professional tennis after taking an indefinite break from the sport last year citing mental health concerns, stunned Samsonova in the opening round fixture with a thumping win in the straight set with a score of 6-3, 6-4.
Talking about it after the match, the 22-year-old revealed that she is ‘feeling good’ to return to the court and also expressed eagerness about the upcoming challenges.
"I'm here and feeling good, so we made it," she said. "I'm just here for the journey right now and seeing how much I can progress. The most important thing is that I feel a lot more refreshed. I'm enjoying practising. I'm enjoying every second that I'm out there," she said.
"Even when I was down today, I was still just enjoying the challenge. Yeah, I'm just happy with how I feel coming back. I feel like I was very burned out while I was playing, and that really wasn't a nice feeling. Being able to just reset is really nice."
