Britain’s tennis star Katie Boulter has opened up about her objective before the Wimbledon season. The 27-year-old is Britain’s number-one player and has been around for a while, during which time she has delivered several impressive performances.
While talking to Eurosport, Boulter explained how she has been handling the pressure of being the country's number one player.
The Leicester-born star also stated that her focus remains on becoming the best version of herself by playing good tennis consistently, week in, week out.
"It [being British No.1] is a privilege, but it is not my sole focus," she said. "My No. 1 focus is to keep my attitude right and my number going in the right direction, play week in, week out and work hard.
Boulter is currently participating in the Rothesay Open, where she is defending her title. The world number 30 booked her place in the third round of the mega-event after beating Rebecca Marino of Canada with a score of 6-4, 6-3.
Talking about her ambition in the competition, Boulter stated that she feels no pressure and believes that winning matches while defending her title is a step in the right direction.
"I don't feel like the defending champion at all right now,” she said. "I am here and I am just playing, I have no pressure. I take it as a massive step in the right direction that I am here as defending champion and winning matches.”
