THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. How did you find that match?
ANASTASIA MYSKINA: Right now I feel great. During the match, it wasn't kind of really good because I was really nervous. Again, when two Russians play, it's always kind of nervous match. I know that was not really the best match today, but I really happy that I won.
Q. Had you played her before?
ANASTASIA MYSKINA: No, that was the first match ever.
Q. And what sort of things will you be working on before your next match?
ANASTASIA MYSKINA: I play Chanda, I guess. I play her here last year, same round. We know each other really well. Just know I have to do best things on the court. Just have to put pressure on her and definitely have to serve better. Just fight for every point.
Q. Can you talk a little bit about her game, what it was like playing against Sharapova?
ANASTASIA MYSKINA: I believe Maria, she not played that good today. I think she was really nervous, yeah, as me. I just, you know, had no idea the way she play. Just knew she hit the ball pretty hard. But I just had to put the ball better, you know, one more shot than her.
