That defeat made a dent in GMA, to the point that today he is collecting the fruits of those desire to improve:Now that I have had time from that defeat, I think I have learned many things from her. I have improved. To be honest, After that series, my trust went down a lot. But as we practice and have good vibrations as a team, we have recovered, so I feel very confident for our next matches. _
That anger and desire to improve is what propels one of the most early talents in the history of the game, which now has an opportunity in full prime of your career to get a key milest1.
