SYDNEY: French Open winner Barbora Krejcikova is enjoying a challenging start to her 2022 season on Monday as she warms up against Belinda Bencic in the opening round of the Sydney Tennis Classic for the Australian Open.

The Czech , who is number three in Sydney and fifth in the world, won her first Grand Slam individual title at the French Open in June and hopes to carry her form into the New Year in 2021 when she competes against her Swiss opponent.

« I played with Belinda last year and it was a very close game, a very close game, » said Krejcikova of the former world number four at a press conference on Sunday.

« We have known each other for a long time. We practiced. We actually practiced here too.

« It’s always good to start with a really good player, so I’m really excited and think it’s going to be a great game.

 » If you like a tournament play this, which is a really high tournament with the best players, there are no easy games anymore. It’s not like you’re playing different tournaments. « 

Krejcikova’s singles win last year came after she established herself as one of the game’s leading doubles.

She won Wimbledon and French Open 2018 title before taking back the Roland Garros title and gold at the Tokyo Olympics last summer alongside Katerina Siniakova.

« What happened last year is very, very amazing, » said Krejcikova, who also won the mixed doubles title at the Australian Open three times.

« I’m really happy and satisfied with the way I played and how successful I was. I mean, I was just trying to accept what happened in the off-season. «
