Jelena Jankovic


THE MODERATOR: First question for Jelena, please.

Q. 6-1, 6-4, it looks easy. Was it easy on the court?

JELENA JANKOVIC: It wasn't easy on the court. The first set I played well, I didn't make many mistakes. I won it 6-1. But then she went to the bathroom when we finish the set, so I little bit got -- I cooled off and I was down 3-love in the second. Then I came back and was 4-3, 4-4, 5-4 and took the set. But it wasn't easy match.

Q. Also, second last point, you took the racquet. What happened?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, my grip was wet from playing and my hand was also all sweaty. So I served and I was loose, so it just flew and on the court. But I was not happy about that. It was a big point, and it just went out of my hand.

Q. The next opponent, your second round?

JELENA JANKOVIC: I don't know. I didn't see. I'm just happy with this win. It's my first win over a Top 10 player, so we'll see.

Q. Is this your biggest win in your career?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, it's my first win over a Top 10 player so it's my biggest win for now.

Q. Do you have good memories from last year here?

JELENA JANKOVIC: Yeah, last year I qualified here and lost in second round against Amanda Coetzer. I lost 6-4 in the third. But it was my first Grand Slam last year, so I did a good job. I played five matches, I lost to Amanda. But this year, you know, I won over a Top 10 player so it's better, and I'm still looking forward to the next matches. Also, like in 2001, I won my junior title here so I have very good memories here in Australia, in Melbourne.
