August 31, 1997

Amanda Coetzer

Flushing Meadows, New York

Q. Very disappointing loss. Can you explain what happened at the end?

AMANDA COETZER: I think, you know, she played a good match, served pretty well, you know. Just a few points difference here and there. Went her way. I don't think I did anything wrong, you know. I think she just came up with some really good shots when she had to.

Q. I know it's really soon after the match. Have you had a chance to think about it? If so, can you learn anything for the next time you're in a situation like that?

AMANDA COETZER: Yeah, definitely. I think you definitely learn a lot more after you lose a match. So I'll learn quite a bit. I think tactically she played a really good match. She didn't go for too much like she has done in the past. I definitely can learn from it. She played me a little bit differently than she has in the past.

Q. What do you bring away from this tournament in general? Was it a good experience, the 1997 US Open?

AMANDA COETZER: Yeah. Nice to see the new facilities and really nice to play on center court. So, yeah, looking forward to coming back here.

Q. Made a really big point of being fit. Can you talk about, more than physically, do you feel it gives you a mental edge over your opponent because you are more fit?

AMANDA COETZER: I think under certain conditions, yeah. Not your everyday match. But playing the top players, where you probably push a little bit harder on every point, it really helps to know that my recovery is pretty good, you know, in between points. And a long match, maybe hot conditions, it definitely comes into play quite a bit.

Q. Can you talk about the New York crowd? How do you feel they might be different from other places that you go?

AMANDA COETZER: They're probably a little bit rowdier than other places, but I think it's definitely a little bit different playing on this stadium than the older one. I really enjoyed it. It seems a little bit less rowdy than before. I don't know if it's just the way it's situated.
