Marion Bartoli, on her defeat by Christina McHale
Hard to say, but usually I'm there by the fourth round. That's where I really pick it up. In any tournament, like starting the quarterfinals, that's where I feel like I'm really picking up the level of my game.
I was really looking forward to the match. I love those big matches and playing against Venus. We had two amazing matches the last two meetings. I was really looking forward to it....
Wouldn't it be nice to see 2004 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova show up at a big tournament this year and show off her former slam-winning stuff?
She played a very solid match, and she has some big weapons. She started getting on top there in the second set, but in that one long game, I think as a returner, there was less pressure on me, so I just tried not to make too many silly mistakes.
In kindergarten I sang “Peanut Butter Jelly” in a talent show and I was amazing.
