I probably would drop-shot her all day if I were standing at the other end.
Commented about Laura Robson
It’s difficult for me to keep a high level for a whole match. I played so well in 2011. Every shot was going in. It’s not
the same this year. I have moments when I’m not playing well. Sometimes I
have trouble with my serve and do some double faults. That’s a key. I
have to focus on each point, just thinking about that point and not
about the past. I do feel more relaxed not being the defending champion
this year. There is less pressure on me.
I feel better physically now than I have in a long time. I try to play
better with each match, so going into the second week there are a lot of
things I would like to improve.
She plays pretty flat and also pretty deep. Sometimes I really I was
feeling I have dug my knees in the ground and I can't hit the ball. I
mean, this is grass court. Lucky not so many players like her.
Li Na, commenting on Klara Zakopalova
I think a couple of months ago some journalist asked me who is one of the
youngest players, you know, coming up and doing some good results. You
know, I picked her.
Agnieszka Radwanska, commenting on Madison Keys
When Robson plays well, she plays on instinct. She doesn't try to make it happen--she lets it happen.
I didn’t have a good night’s sleep. The match was still in my
mind, what was good and bad. Today was another day for me. I played
aggressively and that was the key. Yesterday it was quite close every
game and we held serve. Then after the rain I played so well and was on
fire but some easy mistakes came again and it was difficult to come back
in the match so I was glad it was quite dark and we continued today.
That's gonna be a shotmaker's paradise.
