Karolina Pliskova

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Press Conference

K. MUCHOVA/K. Pliskova

7-5, 7-5

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Talk us through the match, tough match versus a compatriot. How are you feeling?

KAROLINA PLISKOVA: Obviously disappointed because I thought I had plenty chances. Unfortunately I was just not able to play well at the important moments. That's about it for today.

Q. Can I ask you about the rules. Were you given the second warning because of smashing the same racquet off court?


Q. Did you know about that rule?


Q. Have you talked to anyone about it since?


Q. Obviously took you by surprise.

KAROLINA PLISKOVA: Well, little bit. But I think actually it helped me in the second set because I was pissed so I started to play well. So, yeah, surprised, of course.

Q. From 5-Love up in the second set, was it just a lack of focus, drop of energy? What was the issue?

KAROLINA PLISKOVA: No, for sure not energy. I thought there were couple close games where I could really go 6-0. There was long game for 5-1 and 6-0.

I thought she just played little bit better at this moment. Of course, I played quite amazing to 5-0, but then it's quite tough to hold this level for longer time. I was going for, like, big shots.

I mean, I had chances. It's not like she would play amazing. But fairly difficult points there. Then on my serve, I just could do so many things better today, so...

Q. With this tournament in the rearview mirror, do you have a sense of where your game is, the certain parts that need more work are?

KAROLINA PLISKOVA: No, I don't think my game is the top for sure, not at the top. I don't want like to be too sarcastic and too negative after because I just loss. It's tough to really say.

I don't think I was playing really amazing. The feeling was not great from any of the matches here. Some were little bit better, some were little bit worse.

I think overall, like, too many mistakes, too much like panic in the rallies. I don't know if it's just like not having any matches much lately, like even last year. Yeah, I don't feel like safe with anything what I was really doing on the court.
