Francoise Abanda

Paris, France


6-0, 6-0

THE MODERATOR: Questions in French.

Q. I'm under the impression that you don't want to share anything, but what can you tell us nonetheless?
FRANCOISE ABANDA: Defeat is defeat. So she played very well today. So I was quite tired.

In the future, I hope that I will be in the main draw in order to save some energy in order to go deep in the tournament. So it's very difficult when you have played matches in a qualifying tournament.

Q. Were you impressed by her game?
FRANCOISE ABANDA: I wasn't impressed at all. As I told you, fitness-wise and physically, I was tired.

Caroline played quite well. She was smart. I think that she played her second match. I played five matches. Physically, I couldn't sustain the challenge. I hope that I will be able to qualify for the main draw. It's very difficult to get out of a qualifying tournament and to have a deep run in the final draw.

Q. What are your plans in the future?
FRANCOISE ABANDA: No idea. I will take part in some grass tournaments before Wimbledon.
