...I'm not going to Eastbourne because of this injury. I have to withdraw, because I really need some time. But I'm not sure if I will be able to play Wimbledon.
I just felt flat. So every time, you know, I felt late. I felt like too far from the ball. I never hit a clean ball.
I was still getting my ankle taped as Elena was walking off the court. So quickly finished that and got organized.
...So was happy to catch that set. Then when I see I was ready to take towel, I did like this, and I saw her too close. I say, Maybe something happen. And for ten seconds, I don't know how many seconds, but I couldn't realize. Then I know when you shake the hands, it's finish. So then my mind came where I was.
I had medication; I had a painkiller; I had an antiinflammation and all the tape that I could try. But, I mean, nothing has been working at that point. So I don't think I could have something extra to make it, you know, magic move.
In the previous round when you played Serena and she had match point, that match point just barely went out, you know, like maybe a couple inches. How did you watch that ball, and what did you feel in that moment?It kind of felt like it was in slow motion. It was kind of just floating through. I heard the linesman call, Out. It was like it didn't really happen. I had to watch him put his arm out, and then I realized that I was still in the match. Definitely held my breath for a second there.
I don't even know who that was on the court.
Is why is that success coming so late for you?
Why late? I think everybody are different. Could be late for you, could be good for you. I think it's my time now. Maybe before I wasn't ready. Maybe before I had the chance I didn't catch, so I think now I have just to live and to keep going to work like I did for many years.
...I think Samantha has a very big chance. She played so well this tournament, and she has beaten, you know, I think the favorites of this tournament. So I think she has a good chance. You know, she's playing very, very well. I think she'll do it.
