Tennis Champion Angelique Kerber: "Everyone Wants to Beat Me"
"It's not only about playing tennis. You have to deal with other things. It wasn't easy for me. It was hard to travel every single week and not be able to see my friends. At one point I traveled around the world—that was my dream and I really enjoyed it. But there were also times I couldn't go to a friend's birthday party or wedding. I'd be sitting alone in my hotel room and thinking, 'Okay, we can Skype for five minutes, but that's it.' Tennis is an individual sport, and you have to find a team you can trust. Now, I have a few friends who are tennis players, and we can all go to a nice dinner together sometimes. It's nice to have them, but in the end, you're alone."
