So today during the match I many times I was thinking to better to retire or not, because it's still many tournament coming, and then next Grand Slam coming very soon. Then my condition was very bad. So if I injury one my time, it's big injury. I cannot play anymore. But my feeling was don't want to stop. So even when I lost, I don't want to stop. And then same time she start a little bit get nervous, and then she start to make easy mistake. So I try many things, drop shot, and then to use more wider, slowly, and then she start mistakes. So I try everything, and then just to wait until she mistake. Yeah.

She has a very strange game because she hits so hard on the ball. Sometimes it's very slow, so you have to deal with it.

You separated with your coach, I hear. You want to talk a little bit about that? I know he was important to you.
Yeah. After Madrid I took a decision to stop. I mean, definitely he did the best job than everybody could make with me. He brought me to No. 1 in the world. I mean, not him. Together we came together to number one. But I decided that I wanted to stop, and that's it. I won't say anything.
Was it getting too intense or...
I don't want to comment anything else.
Maybe another voice...
I don't want to comment more than this.
You know what, the thing is it changes all the time. It's not like this length is inappropriate, because obviously when someone serves the whole dress comes up. I mean, you can't say it's okay for Maria to do it when she has pictures like that, but Venus can't.
This year, it starts badly for the French.
Here it is, here we go again. Yes?
You're very intense. Why? Is it since you were a child?
Well, I was always like that. At times I thought it's because of what I experienced in my life, but then I watched some videos of me when I was four, five, six, and I was already like that. I'm not a loner, but there are times when I really need to be really focused on myself, and I did that when I was a child, so I guess it's part of me.
And your immediate goals for this year are what?
I thought, media goals, wow, I would never set those goals.
