"I would like to get to more final rounds but this is a process": Badosa on the 'right track' despite Rome Open exit

Paula Badosa is out of the Rome Open having been beaten by Jelena Ostapenko but she's glad about the progress she's making ahead of Roland Garros.

It was a 3-set match between Badosa and Ostapenko with the latter ultimately winning. The Spaniard has made a lot of progress in the past few weeks and looks like a player that could win Roland Garros if she keeps playing this well and improves more. Speaking after the loss, Badosa admitted that she's glad about the way she's progressing:

"I've been several weeks now that I think they are being from less to more, they are being positive, I am feeling good, I am winning good games. Obviously, I would like to get to more final rounds but this is a process and I think I'm on the right track."

On the match itself, Badosa added:

"She has played very, very well. In the end, I tried to hold on as much as I could, I tried to be there, throw it back, try to be a little more aggressive... But hey in the end she has also made it very difficult for me. I always felt like I could take it with me. I try to fight to the last point. I think physically it was costing me a little, I was already on the edge at the time, but I've always continued to believe."
