Serena played too good today, but I'm just very happy to be here in the final. It was not my day.
I was definitely inspired by Serena's singles performance. Obviously it's wonderful to play on the court with her. I couldn't have done it without her, so it's great.
Is 30 the new 20?
Well gosh , of course--hello!
Nothing is inevitable. Destiny does not exist. There is no free ride on fortune’s back to the great prizes. Those who win them, earn them. They bend what is possible, and stretch what should happen, and alter it to their own blueprint. They get up off the couch and get started.
I don't think either of us believe that we can be defeated by anything. Nothing has defeated us yet, so we're going to keep that track record.
Greatness is...being able to accept a loss gracefully.
How do you think you've done in that regard?
Oh, I've been terrible at it.
I felt surprisingly calm. I was happy with myself for that.
I’m still shaking so much; I think I had the best two weeks of my life.
