She bares her soul and writes her deepest emotion, accepting defeat and also disappointment.
“My loss has left a significant emotional impact on me, especially considering the challenging and demanding year I’ve had. It’s disheartening to experience disappointing defeat after each successful tournament. However, I am determined to channel my emotions into redoubling my efforts and making the remainder of the year truly remarkable”
