Now, the French federation is putting all means at her disposal to make it happen.

According to L’Équipe, the FFT has exclusively assigned her a coach, Rodolphe Gilbert, and a physical trainer, Cyril Brechbühl. She’s been going at it hard for three weeks.

In the meantime, she’ll commentate for Eurosport at the Australian Open.
