"I certainly searched for some other places I could practise but it was just natural to decide for Trnava. I have my whole family, my grandma here, I keep on visiting them. They were very pleased to see me more often, since when I was playing tournaments we were rarely together. I can recompense them now. I have spoken to Vladimir (Platenik) and he told us to come and to try. I knew something about the Academy and that Daria Kasatkina is practising here. I know Oliver Nagy, my sparring partner for a long time. I was also interested because I was looking for a training base. With good conditions and a lot of players I can play with. Then it is easier for me to practise. I found it, plus my family is also here. I feel like being at home, that’s also very important for me."
