  Q: Serena Williams has mentioned you played excellent today, what would you like to say about the match?

  A: Actually we both played well, especially in serve. I looked at the 1st serve percentage, and it’s good.

  Q: You will play against Chinese player Shuai Peng in the next round who has consecutively defeated Jankovic and Sharapova, and are you prepared for the crowds since they will cheer for her?

  A: Sure, I have got experience like this for many times, I will just do my best.

  Q: What’s your advantage that keeps you in good condition in matches against Chinese players?

  A: My experience, I won them earlier and just as I have mentioned, I will play my best and I have confidence.

  Q: Justin Henin will be back to the tennis court, what’s your opinion?

  A: it’s good to see her coming back, she has always wanted to have family and have child so she made the decision. When she stepped out the professional court for a couple of years she realized she needed it and wanted to be back. Henin still can dominate and play great tennis.
