Sharapova didn't even bother to RSVP, she just crashed through the front door.
I was really mentally prepared for anything, for a battle.
How quickly things can turn. I don't think I did much
wrong. It was just one of those things. You miss a ball, she hits a good
serve next one, play a sloppy game, and all of a sudden, you're
even--and she runs away with it.
I didn't play my best tennis today. I couldn't find my rhythm. I was
completely not on the court. I was there and I was trying to come back,
but I just wasn't feeling the ball, and it was really tough. I don't
really know what happened.
It was difficult to return her serve. Although I was able to break her, I wasn't feeling comfortable.

Of course, now I'm very happy what I did. But I want to continue.
Why wouldn't there be? I'm in a Grand Slam fourth round. I lost in the fourth round of the Australian Open. I lost the first set playing an opponent who's played a great tournament so far. There's no reason why I should be walking around with my head down.

Eugenie, did you have a plane to catch today?
