In the first set I was a bit nervous. My opponent, she started the match really well and she was playing really good. I was doing some unforced errors. Then I just tried to come back in the second set and focus on every point to get back my game. It helped and I won.
First time I've seen Sam was in the Australian Open when I lost to her
in mixed. I said, "I have to ask her. I have to play with her. She's
going to be a great partner."
I feel like I kind of played three different tournaments. It’s always nice to leave a tournament winning. Leaving
Wimbledon 2014, I'll think of it as, yeah, a great memory, and leaving
with a trophy at the end is fantastic.
We spoke about reducing stupid errors and to create pressure, look for
the space and hit the space because that’s what they were doing. We got
off to a good start and from then on we were on it.
