Britain’s tennis star Katie Boulter is eager to prove her worth on clay court. The 27-year-old does not have a great record while playing on clay surface in the past where she struggled to register results continuously.
Boulter was recently quoted in a report where she expressed optimism of producing the goods on the clay surface and explained how she trained hard which she believes will help her both physically and mentally.
"I chose to go outside and practice on the clay instead of being indoors,' said Boulter, "and I think that mentally gave me a lot of help, and physically really helped me as well. So that's why I'm looking forward to it. I have played some really good stuff. Back in the days when Johanna Konta was playing, I practiced quite a bit with her out there and absolutely loved it. So looking forward to it."
"I think it's something fresh, something exciting for me," Boulter said. "Most players would have played on the dirt and enjoyed it and probably got quite a few points to defend, and I'm going to come out there and swing. So naturally for me, I don't have anything to to lose. “I really am looking forward to it. I think it's very physical and I'm going to show the physical gains that I've really put in the work for."

Boulter, who has struggled with continues fitness struggles in the past, further went on to talk about the impact of hiring Andy Murray's fitness trainer, Matt Little who has helped her in becoming fitter.
"I think it's made a massive difference to my game," she said. "I can see it day in, day out. I see it in my strength out the corners. I see it in so many small little things that are ultimately helping me win these matches. Speaking from a young junior myself who was there when I was 13, I managed to see all the different players.
"We had a couple of foreign players coming in and out. Like Ivanovic at the time, I would sit there and watch her practice and I think I learned a lot from that. I think having everyone under one roof does help those people learn and see what it takes to be at the top of the game."
