I like the fact that it’s a little bit slower probably than a lot of the courts that we play on and gives me time to use my big shots, set up points the way that I want to. I like the sliding into the shots and all that type of thing.
I would love to win this one, but there are still a lot of people in the draw that would love to win this tournament, as well. I'm just one of those.
Varvara Lepchenko transformed the terre battue into a treadmill and Angelique Kerber was doing much of the road work.
Well, you know, I’m an old-timer, and experience serves when you’re old, because I knew what she was thinking about. So I thought, "If I can produce a shot when I oblige her to do even better, and she can’t, then she will be thinking about it," which is exactly what happened.
