"I think it's a growing process for her, to be able to represent something, to make people clap for her, not only for her tennis but also for what she's saying and what she's doing," Mouratoglou says. "I think it helps her play better tennis because she feels more confident about herself. She's seen as someone smart, someone important and someone who represents something."
"I think that for her, it's extremely positive, and if you look at how she's playing since the start of the tournament, she's playing with a lot of certainty. Whenever she hits the ball, you feel like she's sure about what she's doing. There's no hesitation - and with the type of game she can't hesitate and start to think, otherwise the ball is going to go far out, (so) I think it's something very positive for her, I think it's something that helps her grow as a person and grow as an image (role model) and it helps her confidence globally."
