Amelie Mauresmo


THE MODERATOR: Questions for Amelie.

Q. Caused you a few problems early?

AMELIE MAURESMO: Yeah, especially in that first set. I had a pretty slow start, I would say. My legs were not really moving very well. And then, yeah, she played a good first set. She made me work a little bit more. But still, you know, after in that second and third set, I felt really that I was taking control of the game, that she was going down a little bit physically also. So, yeah, it was a tough one, in hot conditions also.

Q. Are you pleased with your game overall, happy?

AMELIE MAURESMO: I was more pleased after the first round, I think. Today the thing I'm pleased with is my head, you know, that I stayed focused, that I hang in there, even though I wasn't really playing some good tennis. But, you know, after that, it came a little bit, after the first set. But it's good sometimes to win when you don't play your best tennis.

Q. Injury and fitness-wise, how are you feeling at the moment?

AMELIE MAURESMO: I'm okay. I'm okay. My legs didn't bother me at all. So that's good, that's a good point. I felt, again, she went down physically as I was really getting better and better. So the work I did is paying off. It shows today.

Q. Interrupted preparation to the tournament to a certain degree. Getting into the second week, how close to the top do you think you're going to be getting?

AMELIE MAURESMO: Well, I hope I'm going to be, you know, better and better. I already feel not too bad physically even though at the beginning I think my energy wasn't really there. But, yeah, hopefully getting into that second week will be better.
