“Before the Australian Open I had to find solutions every single day to try to play the tournament, and finally I did.
“It was not a bad result [to reach] the quarter-finals but not as good as I would like.
“I felt very ready for Melbourne but then after the back problems I had to [wait] around 20-something days before the tournament started I had these problems, so I lost a little bit the positive feelings.
“Then it took some time to get back on-court. I had to do some treatment at home that took a couple of weeks to be able to work the right way again. But, I am quite happy now.
