Fernandez, in a recent post on her official account on the social media platform Instagram, expressed disappointment over the result but expressed optimism to bounce back strongly. "This one hurts. The kind of hurt that pushes you to work harder and go further. Congrats to @onsjabeur on a great battle yesterday. Thank you Madrid Next stop: Rome," wrote Fernandez.
