If everything goes well, she wants to work towards a comeback from February onwards. The 32-year-old is already regularly on the tennis court again, even if normal training is not yet an option.

“I’ve tried pressure-reduced balls, with children’s balls, and the truth is that it worked out well. It didn’t burden me. I try to play between two and three times a week and raise the level a little each time, but first and foremost, it helps me as a mental distraction and physical activity, “says Suarez Navarro.

Olympia in Tokyo as a dream

Her comeback plan provides for participation in a Grand Slam tournament, with a bit of luck even more than that. “I would like to play a Grand Slam, of course in the second half of the season,” said the former world number six and added: “Me I’ll see if I can qualify for the Olympics. The deadline is after Roland Garros and I won’t be able to play before that. It depends on my competitors. If I make the seed list, I’d like to compete in Tokyo. “

But she doesn’t want to take on too much, the Spaniard also said: “The idea is to play three or four tournaments. You also have to see how the situation with the corona virus develops.”
