Q. How satisfied are you with your performance, and what do you think about the Swiss player?
When comes to the court, it's like, Okay, is similar like first round. It's like, Okay. Yeah, I think today she give me very tough time end of the second set.
But I was really happy in the end I can use my experience to win the match.
Q. Do you think the serve is a little different from the one of Martina Hingis?
Q. Can you compare the two players you played? They are both young, Konjuh and Bencic.
Q. Did you think that Bencic today was probably, was she better than Konjuh when you played her?
Both players pretty good, really.
Q. How did you do research on your opponent today?
If she play more tournament on the tour, for sure she would be very good.
Q. How did you find the heat?
Yeah, you know, yesterday I was practice earlier to try to play little bit in the heat. That's why I was here one week earlier, to prepare everything.
Q. Why was the second set much closer than the first one?
Q. Because she got stronger or...
So that's why we play best of three sets.
Q. I wanted to ask you about a newspaper story this week which you said last year you almost retired after losing at Eastbourne.
Q. If Wimbledon had not gone better for you, do you think you would have retired at that point?
But I was really happy. I do well in Wimbledon, so that's why I continue until now. Otherwise I don't know where I am now (smiling).
Q. How are your feelings about your future now? Do you think you will continue for much longer?
Q. Your opponent today, just 16, young girl.
Q. Did that make you feel like an old lady?
Q. You said your preparation is different this year. Can you explain why you made that decision?
So last year I was like 10 days I played nine matches, only one day traveling, so I was feeling very tired when I was arriving here.
So that's why I try to change a little bit schedule to prepare for the Australian Open. Because even I do the same, maybe I cannot recover. Last year I was use two days to recover. Really tough.
Q. By the end of the tournament, you really felt it?
But this year, same schedule like last year. Yeah.
Q. Going back to the comments about where your head was at at Wimbledon last year, you said that you weren't not happy with how you were hitting the ball but that maybe things off the court...
Q. What are the off court things that were maybe putting you in a negative mind space?
Yeah, they make me very they give me very tough time when I play French Open, and it continue to Wimbledon.
Q. So it was like the media pressure?
Q. I'm asking.
Q. Do you think you're judged harshly by the Chinese media?
Q. Just coming back to today's match, how well do you think you played and did you have to play today to win match? You had pretty much winners today.
Q. Yeah. How well do you think you had to play today, you played today?
Q. You were talking about some of the media reports about you were wrong. What aspects were they reporting about that were wrong?
So please don't try to make me wrong again, because right now I really, how do you say, I try to be friend. But maybe not everyone think about that.
Q. The weather in Melbourne is very hot.
