 "I started playing tennis when I was six years old. I'm a member of the TC EMPIRE Trnava club since 2010. In the beginning, I was playing “Searching for the young Olympic players” tournaments (in original: “Hľadáme tenisových olympionikov, HTO) in Slovakia. When I see old photos of myself, I always remember that I experienced joy, then some crying ... just like each very young tennis player does. I enjoyed it, it was a new thing to me. My mum coaches children in our tennis club. Father used to play tennis. They still give me advice and without them, I would not have played anymore. But for me it's not that I have to play, but I want to. If you have to, it's for someone."

 "My first big success was when I won singles title at the Slovak Indoor Championship in year 2010. And then in May, I lost in the final of the Slovak Summer Championship with the same opponent. I was in the Top 10 of the Tennis Europe ranking. I was a member of the Slovak team that won the 2012 World Junior Tennis titles in Prostejov, Czech Republic. The same team was in the final of the ITF Junior Fed Cup 2014 in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Those are successes I appreciate the most. I wish every tennis player had similar experience. For me, Mexico was the greatest tennis experience in life."  

 "I feel very comfortable here, like at home. I'm here almost every day and I have many friends in the club. Tennis and fitness trainers are great. My mum also works in the the TC EMPIRE. It's the best club in Slovakia and thanks to Mr. Miroslav Hlavna, the owner, we have everything we need for tennis training. I'm here from morning till evening. I have trainings in the morning. Then, I go to the school. After that I come back to the club, I wait for my mom and we go home to Malzenice near Trnava. I am also very grateful to my coach Martin Durdik and head coach Miloslav Grolmus because they have patience with me."

Martin Durdik: "Tamara is energetic and mature for her age. If she always stays as tough as nowdays, we will discover her great potential. She is a world champion in the U14 category, silver medalist in the U16 category, these are the things that could help her in the career. Not everyone experiences such a thing. She understands the need to change the tempo of the game, it's not just about firing balls for her."
