”When I skied in a free field before the race and saw that I could get into an egg position – Sofia told Rai microphones – I said to myself that today in padel there would have been no girl happier than me to compete. If I ski like I know how, I can do it. However, it was definitely harder last year to recover for Beijing. There was a leg here a hand. What do you want it to be for a hand?”.
