Indian Wells, March 16: Spain’s Carla Suarez varro has said she could only put up minimal resistance to American Venus Williams in their quarter-fil match at the Indian Wells tennis tourment.

“It was an uncomfortable match. I could not let loose at any point of time. I could not enjoy,” Suarez told Efe in the players’ lounge after the match, adding that she could not attack even in the second set despite having options.

“It was one of those days when things don’t come together. You are a little more lethargic. You know what you have to do and what to change but sometimes it is a bit difficult inside. Time is ticking, there is a scoreboard and it’s not easy,” Suarez said.

The Spaniard said she had lacked intensity and could only put up minimal resistance to Williams, who was playing in her comfort zone.

Suarez however seemed upbeat about defeating World No. 4 Eli Svitoli in the tourment.

“I had been hoping for such a victory for a long time,” she said.

The player said she knew she was in good shape physically, but tennis was decided by small things and the top 10 players were better prepared for stress, having experienced it more often. IANS
