'I'm always living in a fantasy world, ' she added.
Giudicelli did note that the tournament's new rules won't be as strict as Wimbledon's all-white ensemble expectations, but they will definitely "impose certain limits". She returned to the tennis court just six months later, and was back in Grand Slam shape by the time the French Open began in May.
