Daniela Hantuchova


MODERATOR: Questions for Daniela.

Q. Talk about maybe comparing this match to Wimbledon, how she was different, how you were different.

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA: I think definitely today I didn't have as much energy as I had in Wimbledon because the match last night took a lot out of me. I just felt like, you know, I was not sharp enough, I was not moving that fast. I think in Wimbledon I played much better tennis than I did today. You know, at the moment she's the No. 1 in the world, so obviously she's very confident. It was very tough to play her.

Q. What impression did you have about Serena's play?

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA: I mean, she played great. She was serving really hard. Sometimes on her service games, there was nothing I could have done about. I think I didn't play my best today. I didn't serve as hard as usual. You know, it's for me great experience. I just have to learn from it and move on.

Q. Did you go into it looking at it as a yardstick? You must have thought you had a chance to win. How were you approaching the match?

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA: I was just trying to do my best out there. I was looking for it a lot. I just couldn't play the same way as I did yesterday, which in that case I think would have been much more interesting match. But still was great to be out there on the center court. I enjoyed it. The crowd was great. I have learned a lot from this match.

Q. Do you think she ever invents reasons to be more excited about a match? You've been getting a lot of attention. She comes out and just seems to like kick into a higher level.

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA: That's why Serena and Venus are so good. They raise to another level. They start to play even better when it's crucial. That's what makes them so good.
