Sasnovich on Fed Cup: "We couldn't imagine playing in the final!"

Belarusian tennis player Aliaksandra Sasnovich has given an interview to the TV program Simple Questions with Egor Khrustalev.

I look at the Federation Cup website and do not believe my eyes. It reads that the final match will be Belarus vs USA. I think that most tennis fans do not believe that either. Do you realize that this fact alone is enough to make you feel part of the national tennis history?

Alexandra Sasnovich, tennis player:
In fact, 2 years ago playing in Budapest we could not even imagine we would play in the final.

Only one person said this: Alexander Shakutin, the chairman of our federation.

He said: "You will play in the finals." In fact, you see, that has become reality! It's great. We passed a decent period of time, worked together, we tried hard. We put in a lot of energy, which was very difficult. Training camps, intense matches... In fact, I think it's all deserved.

Maybe one win can be a luck. But several matches... Such strong rivals... Everyone asks "How come?" What do you think, why?

Alexandra Sasnovich
Because we are a team, we have a team spirit. We support each other!
