...you know, it didn't really cross my mind about losing today's match. It was quite clear the standard of tennis wasn't super high, but I think that's because of what's on the line, the expectations. It was never going to be a pretty match.
You had a strap on your back.
I'm pretty much taped up everywhere.
You don't use the LTA money. Can you explain that?
We haven't done for a long time. I don't really want to get into it. It's very political. I'm just concentrating on my tennis, leave the politics to other people. I'm just working as hard as I can and let my tennis speak for itself.
...no, I don't change my tennis for to play Wozniacki. I try to be aggressive every time when I play on clay court or with more intelligence, tactic, because you don't play the same on clay court than on grass.
After what you faced off the court, is there anything on the court that can faze you?
Well, I wouldn't necessarily want to face Nadal at the French Open.
I really felt for her. It actually brought a tear to my eye. I thought, You've got to snap out of it because you've got a match.
Elena Baltacha, on Serena Williams
I don't look ahead and think how amazing it would be to hold the trophy. Obviously I'm very fortunate to have had that feeling before and knowing how good that feeling is. That's what drives you deep down inside. But I also think on the other hand if you want something so bad that you can't sleep over it, where is that going to get you, as well?
She seemed to run you back and forth a little bit.
Yeah, I know. I hate that, you know. I like it standing.
