Nobody say if you are number 2 in the world, you have to win all the matches.
...the pressure has been building up around me for the last few weeks,
and I couldn't be the person I usually am. Sometimes stress can be
positive, but this time I didn't manage it.
I think I have big muscles and I have to recover them very well.
Every Grand Slam has a particularly different atmosphere. When
you're on a court like that, do you hear the saxophone and the accordion
being played outside the court?
didn't today because the crowd was so loud. I feel like ever year I
play here I get such good support. Just the atmosphere, loads of them
are British. They've got the British flags. I just feel like they're
really loud here....
Instead, it was the Pastry who raced to a 5-1
lead, while Li somewhat played the role of an abandoned amusement park. So much fun could be had there, but...ummm, it wasn't happening on this day.
I really believed in myself from the beginning, before the match.
I have no pain so far, so knock on wood....
I had my feet stuck on the ground, and when you play Ivanovic, things
go very fast and you need to be very fast on your legs. I was totally
stuck. So I was like a tractor out there.
...I think today, I just give it away, for the match.
