Danielle Collins reveals the ultimate goal she achieved after overcoming failure, poor race planning and negative media coverage

Unlike many tennis players, Danielle Collins has never shied away from expressing her opinions in public. The American’s open-hearted attitude is something that is endearing to many tennis fans, especially in the United States. Collins did not hold back anymore and this time wrote a long post on Instagram, in which she described all her problems with the tennis world.

Earlier this year, Danielle Collins retired from professional tennis. With nothing to lose, the WTA star has played the best tennis of her career so far. Collins won consecutive titles at the Miami Open and the Charleston Open.

However, every time she spoke to the media after that, she was asked to justify her success. This frustrated her and now she has more to say about it.

“With all the attention surrounding my retirement at the end of the year, the past few weeks have been quite a challenge for me. I played some of my best tennis, but I also found that I really dreaded going to work and crying every day.

“The conversations with the media about explaining my health issues, being asked over and over again to justify my success, and being constantly questioned about my retirement and desire to start a family were real exhausting.”

Collins also berated fans and audiences for their hostile attitude. She also joined the long list of athletes who criticized tennis administrators for approving the scheduling of late-night matches in many tournaments. It made her realize that she had missed the things she loved to do.

But Collins’ biggest achievement is making the United States 2024 Olympics tennis team, and she wrote about that too.

“After six months of playing a tournament almost every week, I can finally take some time to relax and recover. At the beginning of the season it was a goal of mine to qualify for the Olympics. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to make this happen. I am very proud of my success over the past six months.”

Ultimately, Collins thanked her boyfriend Bryan and her close friends and family for being by her side through thick and thin. She will return soon for the grass season, but her eyes will be on the Olympics.

Danielle Collins is excited to be part of the United States Olympic team

After much struggle and sacrifice, Danielle Collins finally made the U.S. team for the 2024 Olympics. She has had her fair share of health issues. Collins was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2019, which caused swelling in her joints.

The 30-year-old has failed to make it to the Olympics several times in the past, which hurt her. Collins has not had an easy time in tennis in an era where she has had to play Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka, Caroline Wozniacki, Iga Swiatek and other multiple Grand Slam champions.

But at the 2024 Olympics, Danielle Collins will team up with Coco Gauff, Jessica Pegula and Madison Keys to represent the United States. Collins once spoke in an interview about her love for multi-team events, as she has also played for the country in the Billie Jean King Cup.

“I would like nothing more than to represent my country. My favorite memories on the field are honestly the weeks at the Billie Jean King Cup. There is nothing, nothing like it,” as City & Country reported.

Although he has climbed to No. 10 in the WTA rankings, competing in the Paris Olympics this year is a no-brainer for her as she has nothing to lose if she misses tournaments taking place simultaneously in July in the United States. Collins’ presence would make the US one of the favorites to win gold at the tennis event.
