I finally made a quarterfinal this year!
Do you like the way you're treated by the media? Would you
like to be more sort of in the spotlight like certain stars, or you like
to be in the shadow? What is your attitude? Do you think that someone
is not considering you enough or not?
I think I prefer to stay in the shade.
Is it different? Do you have to do something different to play against her (Serena) than you would...
Something different. You cannot invent something. I mean, you
just have to play your tennis and do your best. Of course, she's better

But you still believe?
Of course. Why not?
What are the positives you take out of this? You made the fourth round of the US Open, lost to the number 1 seed.

...of course I'm nervous a little bit. Sometimes more; sometimes less. But
all the time when I'm nervous, maybe more than normal, I'm all the time
try to speak with my coach about this. Like just to talk, you know. And
then this situation she told me some things and this situation just let
it go, you know.
I played Jennifer Capriati. At that time, we were the same age.
