THE MODERATOR:テつ Questions, please.

Q.テつ How did you feel today about the match?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ Well, we played against each other like three days ago in Auckland, so I know it's going to be a tough match because she's such a great player and very tough to play.
But I went for the match like I did before, and unfortunately didn't finish it how it normally should.テつ It's really sad.

Q.テつ How are you feeling about your form in general right now?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ I feel pretty well.テつ Having a lot of matches behind my, and it's always good to have it because it's the beginning of the season going for Melbourne, it's good to play many matches.
I feel fine.

Q.テつ Goals for this year?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ I have some, but I won't tell you.

Q.テつ Is that a superstition thing?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ Yes, I am very superstitious.テつ I have some goals.テつ I have many.テつ But I like to keep them for me.

Q.テつ You said that you're an emotional player on court.
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ Yeah.

Q.テつ How does that help you?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ Well, being emotional doesn't help so much.テつ You have to know where to limit.テつ The emotions, I have to put them out, but in a way that helps me and it's not against me.テつ I'm trying to work on it with my coaches.テつ I feel I'm getting better.

Q.テつ How do you fell about your next opponent, Sam Stosur?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ I don't know we played each other.テつ I'm not sure.テつ She's great player obviously and she is home; home crowd behind her.
I will just go there and enjoy myself and try to play as good as I can the day and we see how it goes.

Q.テつ One more thing:テつ Are you keeping track of the other Czech players at this tournament?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ Yes, I do.

Q.テつ They're doing very well right now.テつ I'm always curious to ask Czech tennis, what do you think makes Czech people so good at tennis?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ Maybe we have good coaches; maybe we work hard.テつ The school in Czech, from the beginning, when we were young, we hit a lot of balls and a lot of patterns.
I don't know why.テつ We have good talent.テつ More women than I think men's right now, but it's good for such a small country like Czech.テつ I am happy that we are doing well.

Q.テつ There is a new WTA tournament in Prague.テつ Are you excited to go?
BARBORA ZAHLAVOVA STRYCOVA:テつ I'm very excited.テつ We already had one before, but it's going to be a different place.テつ I'm always happy to play at home because it's always nice.テつ It's like 30 minutes from my hometown so I don't have to stay in a hotel.テつ I'm really looking forward to be there.
