She told reporters: "Today was much better, I'm back in the competitive tournament mode 100% and focused.
"I knew it was going to be tough with the conditions but I was focused on winning quickly. I like the way I built up from the last match and plan to keep improving.
"It's difficult to duplicate the form I had at the start last season but I will do my best. This year feels not much different because I am here to win again, there is expectations from the outside but I must remain focused."
