When and where you began playing, and why this sport?
"In 1998, I began to play badminton in my home city, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. One of my sisters was playing at that time and I just followed her because it was fun, and then I caught the "virus"! I really enjoy the life on tour as a badminton player, and I like to push myself in training, having a goal in my mind. I'm really privileged to be able to go on court every single day and do what I really like!"
