Badosa, who is seeded 11th for the Australian Open, which begins Monday, is scheduled to play American Caty McNally in her first-round match at Melbourne Park.
“I think I was playing very good tennis, high level,” the Spanish player said. “I played three really good matches. I think that helps me, as well, on my confidence for the tournaments ahead. Now it’s something that I cannot control, so it is what it is.”
Badosa endured 74- and 81-minute sets Thursday in her quarterfinal win over Beatriz Haddad Maia. Badosa said she felt she pulled a muscle during the match.
“Today I feel a little bit worse, so yeah, I have the Australian Open ahead, and I hope I can recover for that,” Badosa said.
