What is the work of Agnieszka Prusińska? – Before the tournament Angelique had had two workouts a day. I prepare a warm-up before each one and suggest some exercises. After the session there is time for therapy and stretching. In addition, we go through some more therapy or massage in the evening – says Agnieszka.
