  Q: What are your thoughts on the match?

  A: You know it’s so soon after the match, but she played really well. Unfortunately sometimes I just made an error too soon while playing.

  Q: Was it something about her game that you found particularly difficult to manage? Or was it something about your game that you think she might respond to particularly well?

  A: I think she plays well against everyone that she plays and I think I usually do too.

  Q: Can please tell us why you had twelve double faults?

  A: Twelve double faults didn’t help me today. I wasn’t counting those, though.
