(VIDEO) Ostapenko brutally honest as ever in Birmingham Classic post match interview: “My level was better than her and I showed it”
Jelena Ostapenko is well known for always letting her feelings known whether that is on the court or during media and after defeating Rebecca Marino in her opener at the Birmingham Classic, there was another example of this.
The former Roland Garros champion made the crowd gasp as she discussed the match in typical Ostapenko style.
“The biggest opponent to me was myself because I played really well until 6-2, 5-1. She didn’t really do anything. She didn’t change anything until that score then I started to fight against myself. I started to miss some balls but I’m glad I won because my level is way better than hers today and I showed it,” she said.
