Caroline Garcia broke out for the first time several years ago and she was pretty certain that it would not happen again.
It didn't look very promising early on this year either as she started the year with a 7-8 record and a foot injury that was bothering her quite a bit. She explained what the year meant for her in a lengthy post on Twitter writing:
"Several times, I was invaded by doubts, let myself be overwhelmed by the negative. I questioned the universe, told myself that maybe my luck has passed, that I would never succeed again. I've had sleepless nights, binge eating, cried in my hotel room, cried on tennis courts, [have] been on crutches, swore, relearned to walk, struggled to find shoes. I suffered physically and mentally."

"The injury allowed me to play more liberated. I learned to let go, accept my mistakes, the unexpected, to delegate, to trust myself, to follow my instincts. By building day by day, by staying positive, by having confidence, with simple goals in mind: to be healthy, do my best day by day, live in the present moment and play my game to the fullest, I ended up [living] the best season of my career!"
