Diede De Groot

Miami, Florida, USA

Flash Quotes

D. De GROOT/A. Bernal

6-3, 7-5

Q. Congratulations, Diede. Can you just talk me through your match and your experience with the Miami Open Wheelchair Tennis Invitational?

DIEDE De GROOT: So it was actually the first-ever demonstration tournament that I have played. I have played a couple of demonstrations where it was not officially a match, and I have noticed that I find it quite difficult to then be completely focused, and my opponent was definitely very focused.

So that was a different experience, but I'm so happy to play here. We had a few people in the -- how do you call it -- the chairs, the stands, to come and cheer for us today. A lot of Colombians, as well, so that made a good atmosphere.

I'm really just happy for the opportunity we got here this week. Hopefully we can make it an even better one and bigger one and an official one next year.

Q. You mentioned the fans. There seems to be a big community out here supporting. How nice is that? Does this help you with your tennis when you're playing?

DIEDE De GROOT: I actually think if we promote the tournament more we can have so many more people coming to watch. That can be something we can work on for next year. Promoted on the website, promoted everywhere we can so that there is many people know that we are actually playing here, so that could be something for next year.

But still, I notice that the people that come and watch are here to watch and to support, so that's very good.
