Kallyna Sabino:
You just won the World Junior White Eagle, the most important championship for your age, and also your first international championship in an unbeaten way, without losing a single set or game. It was a surprise?

Melissa Krugger:
Yes, a great surprise! It is not unusual for me to lose a game when I’m playing against professional men players, but actually losing a whole match I think is more than rare, it is something that never happened. Still, I did not think it would happen this way in this championship because it was my first international competition. I was a little nervous and such.

Kallyna:
You never lost a game? Even as a child?

Melissa:
When I was a kid, I played better than the other children, it was easy to beat them all, and while playing with adults, they let me win. Even today, when I play against professionals, they have the kind of let the lady win the match.

Kallyna:
You do not think they play for real and you win because you are better?

Melissa:
Really? When I play against professional men, it’is always a friendly match, I have the impression that they will let me win, I do not even much effort.

Kallyna:
You’re saying you won a top 5 player in the world without effort?

Melissa:
I’m saying the kindness of others is what decides a friendly match. I’m about to become professional, soon I will know if I could win because I’m the better one or not.

Kallyna:
You want to become a professional? And the studies, how it will fit with the routine of tennis?

Melissa:
It is perfectly possible to manage both. The problem would be only during the travellings, but it can be solved by teleconferences.

Kallyna:
What do you do in your free time?

Melissa:
I like to shoot and go to ventriloquist shows.

Kallyna:
You’re the first person in the family to play tennis?

Melissa:
No, we all played, but just me and grandpa played almost professionally. Grandpa did not get to be professional, but I intend to be.

Kallyna:
What do you think of the statements of some players of your age who refuse to play against you?

Melissa:
I think they should do more and talk less.

Kallyna:
How do you prepare before matches?

Melissa:
I do stretching, hear Echosmith and pray. I ask for St. Benedict’s protection.

Kallyna:
Thank you, Melissa, good luck in their upcoming games.

Melissa:
I thank you, Kallyna, loved the interview. May St. Benedict protect you.
