Yeah, I beat her last year, but doesn't mean anything for this year. Also she have to win today first.
She has this sneaky aggressive play, I would call it. It's not like a big hitter like Maria Sharapova where you say, "Okay, now she's going to smack the ball." It's more like sneaky aggressive. Yeah, my coach called her the Davydenko of women's tennis....

Do you look at stats? You had three times more winners than Caroline, but you had three times more unforced errors than her. Do you look at the stats after a match?
Si, si. I look at the statistics. I'm interesting after I go to check. But we are different player. She's more consist and she play much more in defense and keep going to do the same things. If I do like this, I can't win one match. So I have to push to play a different play. It's normal that I risk more and she risk less. Two type of player, different. So you can compare a little bit, but not too much.
It's as if she's on center stage at La Scala, singing an aria....

You're on the player council now of the WTA. Are you personally in favor the on court coaching or not?
I like it. I like it. I think it's a good thing. It makes it more interesting. I think that the crowd likes it more also that they hear it at home, what we talk about.
You're thinking now you're a better player than the one who won the French? I think so, but I want to hear your opinion.
If you think so, I can say yes.
I believe your mother has never watched you play. What would it take to make her come watch you to play? Maybe if you make the final?
I win the match already, and my family talk to her, "She win already." Then she can start video. If I play the same time, she's never watch. Even you couldn't say, Li Na, she's playing now. After, she say, "I need air," she was so nervous.
