Great interview with Ana Cristina.
She said that she chose to have a more complex surgery that would completely repair her meniscus instead of a simpler surgery that would be just moving the part of the meniscus that got out of place. The recovery time can be up to 6 months (as opposed to the few weeks for the simpler surgery), but she felt like it was the best decision for her long-term health.
She also said that Terzic gave her a massive "almost as heavy as a real piano" keyboard for Fenerbahce's secret santa lol.
This is a great quote (she's talking about the WCH): "Ever since I was little, I've been in high demand. Many would say that I was going to be this or that, that I was such a prospect, that I was going to make it. Expectations were everywhere. Including my own. Since the age of 14, when I started playing for the youth teams, I have been with the NT. I was on every call. That's a lot of pressure for a young girl to deal with. Everything in my life was rushed, I was always the youngest on the team. I was never the oldest anywhere. And, these past few years, the pressure has gotten even greater. Those moments were very hard for me. I thought it was the best option [missing out on the WCH] because I was in no condition to help the team. I didn't want to be a burden instead of a help. At that moment, I had to look inside myself and acknowledge what I needed to do for myself."
