Hantuch: It was a nice season

BRATISLAVA. Slovak tennis player Daniela Hantuchová evaluates the 2011 season as successful, but it negatively affected her health problems.

“After so many years on the circuit, it’s normal that everything is worn out.” I try to avoid the shoulder surgery that many doctors recommend, but it is unacceptable for me to fall out of the game for six months. I do not know what to do before, we try different therapies, “said the 24th world player at a Friday meeting with journalists. Hantuch: I was supposed to be higher

The holder of a grandslam’s career in the mixed doubles competition this season saw a double-win at the WTA tournament in Pattaya, did not finish at the Birmingham finals and twice fought the semifinals (Strasbourg and Eastbourne).Alongside Polska Agnieszka Radwanska, she succeeded in a doubles competition in Miami.

Despite this success calculation, she is not convinced that her performance has been fairly reflected in the rankings.

“This year, my game has not so much rebounded in retirement, I should have been higher, maybe if I won one or two matches that did not come out of the game and eventually succeed On some tournament. ” The injuries hurt her

Hantuch predicts that the health problems at the end of the season have reduced her performance by 60-70 percent. “It was very bad after Wimbledon, if I did not take anti-inflammatory drugs, I could not work or serve.I will adjust the program for the next season, and 25 tournaments will not be played under the current system. I will try to make my form a step in the most important events. I want it to have a bigger effect. “

The former world five has admitted that the Olympic tournament is going to be a huge challenge next year, taking place at the All England Club, a traditional Wimbledon show.

Daniela Hantuchová does not yet know when she will end her active career and although she has not decided for her future profession, what she said: “I started studying management. It’s not easy at all, tennis is easier in this respect. “
