write what i felt
According to a BBC report, a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers in Texas on Thursday. Gough said, “I didn’t know what I was going to write. At that time, I felt it right to write that, so I wrote it. I woke up this morning and saw that there was another shooting and I thought what a pagalpanti this is.”
I am human before tennis player
Gough said that he is comfortable speaking about social change and that he was inspired by Naomi Osaka, Serena Williams, Labron James. He said, “I think we are in a position where it is said that sports and politics should be separated. Yes, but at the same time I am a human first and then a tennis player.

Gough did not have to struggle much in the semi-finals. She easily managed to make it to the finals. However, they may have trouble in the final as Swantec, who reached the final, won this title in 2020.
