Q. Your opponent was pretty aggressive today. Did you find it difficult just to get into a rhythm just because of that aggressiveness on the other side of the net?
Q. A very long first set, 50 minutes. I guess a lot was about winning the big points.
It could have went either way but I didn't win some of the important points. But it is what it is now.
Q. How much of that was her and how much was you?
Just all that. But all in all I thought she played pretty solid.
Q. Score is not that different, but did it feel more competitive than the semi last year?
But like I said, she played well. I played pretty solid. Of course, I would like to win more of those points in those long games, but, you know, just keep working on it and trying to do better next time.
Q. Were you able to generate enough momentum to get the crowd into it? Is that something that maybe could have helped?
Q. How long has it been since you've gotten in a little pegging war in a professional match?
Q. Could you clarify what happened last night with the raising the arms that was on the television and written about today? Were you celebrating Serena's demise or what was that about?
Andrew and I were like, Oh, my God we were going to do the same thing. We were so excited. Then of course after I'm on the bike, and then I was like, Were they recording that? Then of course in posts and everything and edit and of course I'm cheering against Serena, which had nothing to do with it.
So that was it. We were just having some fun.
Q. You head butted and kissed Andrew after that?
Q. Do you think it was invasive of them to be filming you, watching you in that area?
Move on. Who cares?
Q. It's nearly 12 months since you played Victoria. Did you notice anything different in her game?
I'm still working on things trying to get better I thought I matched up pretty good with her today, hopefully work on a few more things and hopefully next time it will be the over way around.
Q. Does she become more dangerous the more she goes to the net? Does it make her more versatile?
Q. What do you think she exposed of your game today? What did she work to do well against you today?
No, I guess she played consistent. She played pretty solid. Obviously that's what she does really well.
So, you know...
Q. Was your movement, court movement as happy as because you're known for that.
Q. After last year's match finished, does this match feel a little bit more on edge or heightened?
And obviously fourth round of a Grand Slam is always tough. You just go out and do your best. Unfortunately I didn't win today, but there will be others.
Q. You like these big occasions though, don't you?
Q. Yes to Fed Cup or you haven't decided yet?
We will see on that.
Q. But it's a possibility?
Q. February in Cleveland doesn't immediately jump out at you?
Obviously I would love to represent my country, but if my body doesn't allow me to, we'll have to see.
Q. You made fourth round here, but your ranking moved up a couple spots. Does that change your outlook going forward?
But definitely Doha, Dubai, it's a really long year. I'm looking forward to obviously doing better in the smaller events I didn't do well in last year.
Not too worried about the points and whatever. But it's definitely it's tough when you get, you know, into the top 20. But I keep working and try and build on what I have coming up.
Q. Is it easier to focus on small tournaments? Next slam is four months away, so you have some time to work on the little ones.
Q. What's your schedule from now to the French, I guess?
Q. Madrid, Rome?
