Romanian tennis player Solana Chilstea revealed that Goran Ivanisevic was on the stand in the first round of the French Open and thanked Novak Djokovic for his advice and tips. Former Wimbledon champion Ivanisevic has been working with Djokovic since 2019.
Whatever Ivanisevic said to Cîrstea before the opening round of Roland Garros, when the Romanians saw off Tatiyana Maria, 6-3 6-3. “I was very surprised to see him today because I knew he was very busy in Novak, but he was very kind to be there,” Cîrstea told Sports Keeda.
“Yes, I was happy to see him there. He gave me some tips and tricks from the Grand Slam Champion, as the number one coach, and from a lot of experienced people. I am very grateful. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to spend that time in court with him. “
Cîrstea: Ivanisevic was really helpful
Cîrstea asked Ivanisevic to give his thoughts on her game, and the Croatian tennis legend spent an hour talking to Romanians about tennis. “So basically I just asked for his help and I was fortunate enough to get his time an hour.
So he spent that time on the court with me two days ago, and I talked a bit about what’s happening in my head with him, and just talking about tennis is easy .. It was a very fun time. ” Talking to Ivanisevic and hearing from a different perspective was what Cîrstea needed.
“But that was it. It was just an hour of fresh eyes, a little bit of tennis talk, and a different perspective,” Cîrstea added. Before defeating Maria at the French Open, Cîrstea had been eliminated for four consecutive games. The 32-year-old Cîrstea achieved her best at the French Open in 2009, when she reached the quarterfinals.
