Best player you've played with? I can't mention just one – there are so many.

Toughest opponent? Every single opponent is tough – there are no easy games at this level.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? When I was about six I was the only girl playing with a bunch of boys in a small local team. We had a lot of fun.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Work for your dreams and have fun in the game too.
