I don't know. I feel like, you know, in life 32 is young, you know. In sports it's old. But for whatever reason, I feel like I just never was really able to reach my full potential, and I feel like recently I just have been able to do a little better. I just keep trying to improve on everything.
How do you actually feel physically after that match?
I don't know. I don't know if there's a rule that says once some raindrops fall on the court you should stop. Maybe whoever won or lost that point was not going to be happy about it. But, yeah, I don't know. I can't really comment.
Li Na's self-exhortation "Come on, Li Na" works great for her....less so for "Come on, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova."
I always go into matches thinking it'll be my day. She played very well on the important points; it made a difference.
Do you need to raise your level at this point now that you're in the fourth round?
Well, if I don't, I won't be in the tournament much longer.
