How do you prepare for a Grand Slam?
I try to treat it as any other tournament I would be playing but it is certainly the time when you want to be playing your best. I do my absolute best to prepare perfectly starting with my nutrition all the way to making sure my body is feeling perfect and ready to go! The time I spend on court the weeks before are spent trying to clean up the few things that I feel need some work and make sure that I am feeling quick and sharp around the court.
How do you unwind after a game?
Often after a match I will go recover and eat pretty much straight away, and after that I enjoy spending time around friends or sometimes, I will just enjoy going back to the hotel to watch a movie... depends what kind of match it was!
Tell us about Maddison off the court, what are some of your hobbies?
Off court I love brunching with friends and spending as much time at the beach as possible! I also don't mind shopping here and there...
What's your bedtime regime?
I usually end my day with a cup of tea and some chocolate, then I have a nice warm shower, put on a face mask and into my pj's (which I was probably already wearing all afternoon). Being an athlete, I do make sleep a priority for my recovery so to be feeling fresh and ready to go the next day I always try to have at least 8-9 hours of sleep a night.
Are you an early riser or do you prefer a sleep in when you get a chance?
I do always feel better when I get up early and get a few things done but I will never pass up the chance to have a sleep in!
