Q. You've been in the final before. Do you feel you've learnt different things in different finals over the past three years?
Just come to the court, just play, don't think too much.
Q. Do you think it's helped you prepare, the last couple years?
Q. Does it matter to you this is the first final where everyone expects you to win? Do you feel more pressure?
Q. Doesn't change the way you prepare for the match?
Q. You beat her four times. She has never passed the fourth round here. All of a sudden she's beating all the big players. Why do you think she improved so much?
Q. Yes. But I'm asking you. I was told that players study each other, follow each other, see the results. Do you follow her?
Q. She's the smallest height in the top 100. Does that present any different way you approach the game?
Tennis is the sport you have to play, how you say, not only against opponent, you have to see what you should do on the court. More important is yourself.
Q. It obviously gives hope to small players. Doesn't mean you have to be big, strong and powerful to succeed in tennis.
Q. It's her first Grand Slam final. Do you remember how you felt before your first Grand Slam final?
Q. Do you think it's helpful to accept some of the excitement and nerves? Do you think that helps to play better in the final?
Q. Is it possible to put into words how much you want to win this title, what it would mean for you to win here?
Q. I read some article which says you changed your grip when you are serving and hitting the backhand. Is that true?
Q. Could you explain a little bit how it helps on your serve and backhand.
Of course, beginning was tough because I have to forget like old thing maybe I used for 20 years. Of course, first couple days or first week is terrible for me because I always think about the new one or old one.
I think now at least I try to change something. Now I use on the court I think pretty good.
Q. Many players as they get older maybe don't try and improve as much, don't make major changes to their game. You have under Carlos. At what point in your mind did you think, I can't keep playing the way I always play, I need to actually improve?
So I really want to push myself to change a little bit, to see. It's very tough to thinking first because if you change maybe you lose old thing. How you say, I still trust myself, trust Carlos. I believe after change is help for me.
Q. You now look very natural at the net. Is that a surprise to you?
When first time Carlos is telling me, You should come in more on the volley. I was like, What this guy talking about? In the beginning, I was thinking, Huh, why? I will stay baseline for maybe 100 years, never try to come to the net.
But after he tried to say the good way for me. I try. I was feeling well. Is not bad. Especially in Wimbledon last year, I was feeling, if I lose the match, at least I try. I find the new thing for myself.
Q. Do you enjoy that style more now than you used to?
Q. You have quite an aggressive game style. Do you anticipate any changes against Dominika tomorrow?
Q. You're not giving away anything today?
Q. Are you surprised she made three upsets in four days in Rod Laver Arena where she never won a match before and with such an impressive score?
Q. What do you do tonight to help yourself relax? Meal with your team, go to bed early, watch a movie?
Q. Do you believe in third time luck?
Q. So no thoughts of retiring, win or lose tomorrow?
