dear Dominic after reading your last statement I was wondering what would have been my career and therefore my life if I was in your shoes yes what is it like to be Dominic team so I started picturing myself what it was like to have parents coaching tennis when

I touched a tennis racket for the first time at age six and instantly fell in love with it as I grew up in the outskirts of Algiers in a very modest family with parents who had nothing to do with tennis I can't stop thinking that it could have

helped but I don't blame you for it and I stopped thinking about it because after all we don't choose where we are born [Music] I realized now how blessed I am to have parents like mines that I love the most and we trained for nothing in the world

you know in a country like mine it's not easy for a woman to be an athlete and I will never be thankful enough to my parents for supporting me and all the sacrifices they have made for me to pursue my dream if you only knew the Minik but

after all even if I didn't have my parents as coach we can at least count on the local facilities oops did you know that in Algeria the ITF juniors are very very rare and there are not a single ITF Pro ATP or WTA event there is not a

single coach at the international level that is not even a single indoor court I don't know how it was for you but for us over there if it rains for a week we practice our backhands in the gym and you know I'm not even talking about the quality

of the facilities and the courts we didn't even know what court we were playing it it grasps is it clay Africa like they say but don't get me wrong the death didn't stop me from building my own way and even be one of the best players in the

world at age of 14 and I want my first WTA points by winning a 10k at this age quite impressive not unlike you I reached the height of the ITF juniors ranking I didn't reach the top ten but twenty third in the world not too bad for an

African isn't it it was so unlikely that many journalists called me the miracle of things and it's not even a joke very few young African has done it before they say and nobody in my country to beat cygwin that's a mere if I was part of your magical

world back then I would probably have drawn the attention of many sponsors and the Federation would have taken care of me but it didn't happen that way sponsors you say adidas nike Wilson Prince head they don't even exist in Algeria apart from a few equipments and support from

small local companies I only received the minimum for covering my participation for the slams in juniors and you know in Africa an athlete's budget hardly make it's his way into his bank account if you know what I mean I was wondering what could have changed for me at

that time if I was part of your cloth circle shared the same environment and rules like being able to decide when it was the best time to go pro for example what are the rules nobody have a clue about it in Algeria what impact would have made a

fair budget on my career it would have changed my whole life like the fact that I cherish the day when I will be able to afford to give to my parents I'm dreaming about this day so the best player of the country on the top of the juniors

ranking but not a single penny how ironic that you think I'm not sure this would have happened in your country or in any other European country for instance but it didn't stop me and you know well I'm not sure you really know out of Darkness come the light

they say and when everything was falling apart and leaving me to end my career I was lucky enough to find a helping hand people who took care of me and provided me the vital minimum like eating and a place to sleep whether in tournament or everyday life others

helped me gracefully with the equipment and some great Souls nicely supported me with my sports conditioning my situation was hopeless but I got back on track and did my transition to pro however life can be hard sometimes and I got injured at the worst time a time where

the ITF changed the rules not sure if is really affected you but who cares financial resources are key to get back in shape I could really fill it at that moment however once again it didn't stop me despite all the difficulties I coughed to come back to the

WTA ranking today I'm 21 and ranked around the top 600 WTA I still hope to achieve my dream for which I sacrifice ed my childhood my schooling my teenage life my family life my friends my financial life birthday holidays my whole life I'm wondering Dominic what is they

like to have a coach who a system to a personal trainer a physiotherapist a mental coach a dedicated stuff I'm living most of the time on my own I'm a lonely lady traveling the world generally in a three legs trip always looking for the lowest tickets sacrificing my

time training and recoveries just to apply for us per visa with no quality to get it because guess what no red carpet no free pass no Schengen and I forgot to mention I need the visa to pretty much every place I need to go and it's another budget

homie I walk out every possibility of the calendar to optimize the cost trying to get a maximum of points at the same time I'm housing far away from the tournament to reduce the cost do you alternate clay and hard from a week to another like I do do

you finish your tournament with holes in issues like I do I always work my best to do whatever it takes to fulfill the hopes people had when I was in junior despite the lack of founding Dominic let me ask you what does it feel to offer and give

to your parents what does it feel to see them more than a week a year to celebrate your birthday with them I don't even remember the last birthday I celebrated with my beloved ones yes all those sacrifices are part of the game but till the court should be

decide the outcome of my career not my finances this is totally unfair I'm dealing with it every day without complaining constantly fighting every single day in silence do you Dominic unlike you many share my reality just a reminder it's not because of your money that we survive it

until now and nobody requested to you anything the initiative went from generous players who showed instant compassion with a classy touch players eager to spread solidarity and find solution to make a difference champions at all cost Dominic listened expected crisis is putting us through a challenging time and

revealing who people truly are helping players is helping tennis to survive the game is noble the meaning of sports is to distinguish the most talented the most persistent the hard worker the bravest or maybe you want to play alone on cords Dominic told you we did not ask

anything from you except a bit of respect to our sacrifice players like you make me hold on to my dream please don't ruin it
