Years of hard work and passion for the game propelled her to where she is now, and she sat down with Veronica Beard to talk about the hustle and what it means to her.
“Hustle means being gritty,” she told Veronica Beard. “It means working hard every day, no matter what adversaries are thrown at you. It means working towards your goals, and getting back on the horse when you get thrown off. It means not being scared to take chances, wearing your heart on your sleeve, and doing all of this with a sense of joy and purpose because you have a true passion for what you do.”
Collins spoke about how she started playing tennis, why she loves Veronica Beard, secret work weapons and also shared her morning musts in the exclusive interview.
“Matcha tea, a cuddle session with my dogs, and some meditation,” Collins said when explaining her morning must-do’s.
Collins fell in the US Open’s third round to world No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka.
