Episode 277f: 2020 French Open Day 6 - Barbora Krejcikova, Making It on Her Own
Roland Garros has seen many new names emerging to go deep into the tournament already, including a bevy of players from outside the Top 100 reaching the second week. Among them is our guest on today's show: Barbora Krejcikova, a former Slam champ and #1 in doubles, who achieved a long-awaited breakthrough into the Top 100 on Friday by reaching the fourth round of the French Open. Krejcikova discusses her determination to stick with singles, her ability to accept her shortcomings that allowed her to go further, and the continued inspiration she gets from her late coach, Jana Novotna.
