“It feels amazing. I just won the Perth nationals, so my goal was just to win the Showdown. So I just feel speechless right now,” she smiled.
“I think my attitude was more positive (in the final today). She’s a really great player, and she was also fighting, but I think my attitude was just better, and I wanted it more.”
