Simona Halep


S. HALEP/Y. Wickmayer
6-4, 6-2
An interview with:

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. With the seeds falling, especially in the women's draw, how much confidence does it give you going into the quarterfinals?
SIMONA HALEP: Yeah, a lot of confidence I have now because I didn't lose a set. I had good matches here in first week, so I'm really happy that I'm in second week now like last year. Here I started to play my best tennis in Grand Slams. So means a lot for me. I really have more confidence now to play the quarterfinals.

Q. You face Makarova next. Tell us how much you know about her game.
SIMONA HALEP: I know. I know her. I play a few times against her. She serves pretty well; she's moving well; she's playing aggressive. I have my chance. I believe in my chance next round. So I have to make my game again to be aggressive and to serve well like today.

Q. A couple of times on the court you seemed frustrated by things that were not happening. Did you feel you could do better or...
SIMONA HALEP: Well, you know, some moments of the match you are frustrated, but it's normal. I have to accept my mistakes because it's normal to do some of them. I just want to be perfect on court, but is not possible. The perfect doesn't exist. So I try to keep my mind very focused for every point and to forget about the mistakes. I try to be better day by day, match by match. Maybe that's why I'm a little bit nervous during the matches.

Q. What do you think you did really well against her?
SIMONA HALEP: I think I stayed very aggressive. I took the balls very fast. I served pretty well today. My serve helped me a lot in important moments, like in first set when I finished the set with two aces. It was very important moment.
