Chantal Škamlová lost in 1st round at the ITF tournament in Trnava against Belgian Kimberley Zimmermann 2:6, 4:6. Not only this match in Trnava was accompanied by windy and rainy weather. „The conditions were really tough. The opponent got to use to them better than me. Such conditions are on others tournaments too but today it was even more difficult than usually“ said Škamlová after the match. She will play doubles with Honcova. „I have received a message from Maja Chwalinska today morning that she is unable to play due to sickness. Michaela did not have a partner so we agreed on co-operation.“
Škamlová prepares since few months at Match Point Tennis Academy in Puchov with her coach Michal Durovec. „I have to say that our co-operation works really well. I feel that I have improved my game and I hope it will continue this way. I know Michal quite long time, we have been in touch for years. During the winter I was in Puchov and we agreed that we will try the co-operation.“ said Skamlova who announced her focus on doubles last summer. She changed her mind in the end.
„I did not have good conditions for practise. I had no coach and when I got this opportunity I decided myself that I will try singles again. I think I should not end my singles career especially when I am that young. So We will see how will this go.“ added Skamlova with a smile.
