Q. Your first Grand Slam final. You have to be really excited. Did you see today coming?
I wanted to enjoy. Of course it was not easy when I was up in the second set. The thought started to come that I could win, the result and everything. I have to say, I was 100% ready for it and I was just doing what I had to do. That's why I won.
It wasn't easy, because against her you have to earn every point, you have to do the right thing, and that's what I did.
Q. Your scores the last four matches are ridiculous. Can you explain it?
But I was going into every match, you know, just to play my game and play well. This is what happen.
Q. Is there something different about the way you're feeling the ball?
Q. You're ranked outside the top 10, but do you believe the way you're playing at the moment you're a top 10 player?
So we'll see what's going to happen. If I play like this, yeah, it might happen.
Q. Do you feel like your form is peaking? Do you think you're playing your best tennis ever?
Yeah, I would say I'm playing great tennis, yeah.
Q. You're a small woman. Around the world lots of girls say, I can't compete against these big players. What do you feel about that?
Q. You said on court that you felt your energy or your fire early in your life. When did you sense that you were born with that?
So, yeah, this is what is my extra.
Q. Did you ever hear about Amanda Coetzer, No. 3 in the world, and was much shorter than you are?
Q. Coming into the final on Saturday, there will be so much excitement, nerves. How do you deal with that?
But today is different story. I want to enjoy it few hours. Tomorrow I going to prepare for the finals. It's short time. The tournament is long, it's two weeks. But if you take it step by step, you give all in these two weeks, then you can enjoy.
Q. How do you think you're going to beat Li Na?
I'm playing finals, so that's something beautiful. It's like a dream. So I will go just out there and play my best, try to do my best.
Q. You're pretty close friends with Marion Bartoli. How much did you draw from her Wimbledon win?
Yeah, when she won it I knew like everything is possible. Yeah, it was nice.
Q. Did you talk to her during this run here?
Q. A year ago you had a tough loss in Sydney. If someone came to you after that loss and said, Don't worry about it, next year you will beat Radwanska to get to the Australian Open final...
Q. One more question about today's semis. Agnieszka said she was kind of playing in slow motion. Did you feel that on the court?
You have no time to think of her. Just focusing on myself.
Q. You have had many coaches in your life. They all help you, of course, to do what you are today? Has something changed with the last coach that you didn't have before?
DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA: Yeah, we're working with my coach, Matej Liptak for over one year. We started last year. Like we already working for one year and more.
Yeah, I think also I am more mature. All my coaches help me a lot, but he's got to the stage that now I know that I have to do the right things. I want to do it. It's not that somebody was pushing me to do something else and I didn't understand why.
Now I think he's working with a much more mature Domi. That's why all the things can come together.
Q. Hantuchova and Mecir were the most famous Slovak tennis player. Do you think now you are overcoming them?
Q. What are your plans for the day of the final?
Evening my mind is going to be on the finals match. I want to be 100%. It will be the biggest match of my life.
But I will not go on the court like that. There is no pressure. I'm playing finals, so there is nothing better.
Q. You're beating a new record you probably don't know. Ivanovic said the other day 57 you know; Capriati was 67 you know; there are probably more than 70 you know in this press conference.
Q. Can you now validate that good things come in small boxes?
Q. When you beat Voegele, you only lost one game. Did you have a feeling that early that something special was happening here or was it more match by match?
I think that's how the big wins come. You never start to think when you play second or third round of the final or semifinal. You never think about that.
Q. You played Li Na a couple times before. It was never easy. A couple were very close. What do you think is going to be the key for the match on Saturday?
You know, it's going to be my first final, so I will just try to enjoy it. Yeah, I'm really looking forward for the match.
Q. Li Na has been here for the last three years out of four in the final. Do you have the belief to win a Grand Slam?
If I think of it like that, it's finals, it's a big pressure. Still I want to enjoy it on the court. I don't want to suffer on the court. Yeah, that's what I want to do.
Q. What's been the key to your different results now versus Radwanska? Did your comeback at Stanford in that marathon final help you and give you confidence?
Today I was doing everything right. I was going for my shots. I was just doing everything perfect. Maybe she was more nervous. You never know. That's what can combine everything, yeah.
Q. Can you sleep quietly before a big, big match?
Q. How much energy is your group in the box giving you? Seems like it's a strong connection.
But my box is like really giving me some energy, you know, supporting. I feel them there. Today I felt actually when I was going I think I was 3 0 up and I was going on their side, or maybe it was 4 1, I don't remember, I felt like little bit stronger on the other side.
I knew I have them behind me. So I was, yeah, feeling better.
Q. If you win the Australian Open, do you think you'd find time to get married?
Q. Every other day you had a match until today. Does that change your rhythm? Is it hard not having a day off?
After two hours I did my media, I already had to deal with my head on that match, on today's match, so I could be 100%. That's what I did. That's why I'm happy I have tomorrow day off. It will be little bit easier.
