Q. Were you flat? Was it just a bad day at the office? Were you not fully fit?
Yeah, well, I think I was not fresh enough.
Q. She played well, but was there a sense that you could get into it?
Q. Did you know you were feeling a bit flat going into the match?
Of course I knew I was the second half playing so of course I wouldn't have a day off. In that case, that day off would be really a lot for me.
Q. You've played a semifinal before in a Grand Slam. How did that help you prepare for today?
I mean, I feel good. Like, you know, of course it's always a little bit pressure because it's the semifinal of a Grand Slam. But I didn't feel nervous that way.
Of course I wanted to win. It's very disappointing, especially that I didn't play, you know, the top 5 player. It's a little different as well. I think she have one of the best tournament that she's play in her career.
Well, good for her.
Q. You do sometimes start slowly. Did you ever get a sense that it was starting to come and it just didn't develop?
Of course I was trying, especially in the second set, to come back, but I think just I wanted, but my legs not really.
Q. Maybe this is a difficult question, but is this loss tougher for you than the one at Wimbledon?
But was similar, I think. Well that I have I think bigger chance even when I was like, okay, half mummy.
Today I think she was playing very well and I didn't really feel, you know, like suddenly I can really do well.
So of course I try really, but I think she didn't let me really play.
Q. What lesson will you have learned in this tournament that can help you in the future?
Q. Is this a positive tournament for you as you leave? Do you consider it a good one? Are you considering it a bad one?
Well, uhm, I cannot complain about that.
But on other hand, of course you want even more.
Q. You've had a lot of long matches. The way you play means sometimes you have to wear your opponents down. Does that mean an area you have to work on is not fitness, but the ability to recover from a three set match?
She had really tough matches before, especially against Caroline and some tough matches before.
You're always going to feel that. We are just human beings. We are not machine. Sometimes happen; sometimes you, you know, just exhausted.
Q. Did you get a chance to see any of the highlights from yesterday's match?
Q. Did you see a favorite shot that you hit yesterday?
