WTA Championships 2013: Istanbul

By making the quarterfinal in Beijing last week Sara qualified for the WTA’s year end championships in singles, as well as in doubles!

This makes Sara the first Italian player to qualify for the WTA Championships two years in a row. Even more impressively, she is the first player since the institution of the round robin format in 2003 to qualify for the Championships in singles and doubles (in the same year) twice, and only the fifth player in history to do so!

The Gazzetta dello Sport posted an interview with Sara today, where she talks about qualifying for the WTA Championships and her struggle with pressure earlier this year, among other things.
