...every time I play Serena, it really pushes to be better, to improve, to move forward. I have to be thankful to her for that, you know, as well.
I enjoyed this U.S. Open as much as I ever could.
I feel intimidated.

This is like trying to put out a grease fire.
Was your love‑6 first set loss in the third round the toughest part? How did you feel at that point?
I mean, I felt like after that I kind of just was playing more freely and wasn't worried about anything because I was thinking, like, I couldn't do any worse than that.
I really was preparing my runner-up speech.
...having few of the players like that in the women's tour right now is something priceless, you know, something that you cannot take away. It's the people who, you know, like Maria, like Petra, those kind of girls, they always push me to be better. I mean, it's great opportunity, so I have no regret.
Is that your first performance of it?
Yes. So bad, eh? So bad.
