"I haven't had a day off in weeks". "I know that they all want it, but I can never forget it, it's really incredible". By the age of 14 she had already won two junior grand slam titles at the USA and Australian Opens. She went off court for treatment and returned a different player, winning nine points in succession and 12 of the final 13 even though she was hampered. She won her debut pro event, the 1997 Croatian Bol Ladies Open, as a 15-year-old, and successfully defended the title the following year.

"I know this means a lot to every player to reach the semifinals. To see her in the semifinals is inspiring for me".
The 34-year-old took a medical timeout when trailing 3-4 in the final set against Pliskova on Wednesday, before returning to streak through the final three games in a match lasting one hour and 48 minutes. "This is insane, the only thing I can say is "God is good".
Lucic-Baroni is surprised she is getting another chance at this stage of her career. "One day I will tell a long story about the things that have happened to me, but I can never dream of being here again", she said.
