Amanda Coetzer


Q. Do you think you have been able to follow-up your success in Australia fairly satisfactorily?

AMANDA COETZER: Oh, yeah. Definitely I felt -- I feel I am actually playing better than I did in Australia. I have been working pretty hard and, unfortunately, today, I didn't quite do what I wanted to do.

Q. Obviously, tight first set, up 'til 4-All and so on and then it just seemed to run away?

AMANDA COETZER: Yeah, I think I definitely felt like I had some chances the first set, but didn't quite, you know, play good enough all the way through to break her ever. And just let it run away from me.

Q. How would you assess her form given that it is her first tournament of the year?

AMANDA COETZER: I think -- I don't know if it is just with the wind out there, but I definitely felt that she didn't go for as many shots. She tried to come to the net a little bit which I think was smart play, but I felt that she wasn't hurting me that much, but I think that that had to do with the wind and she was playing smart and just playing a little safer than, you know, something that I probably should have tried to do as well.

Q. How bad was the wind out there?

AMANDA COETZER: It was pretty swirly, difficult, and I think, definitely, you think the ball is there, but it is not really there, so you really have to move your feet well and work the ball instead of, you know, go for big shots.

Q. You sort of are now setting your sights for the top 10 or --

AMANDA COETZER: I think I am just kind of taking it step by step. It is quite a battle to get back up. It is tough with, you know, it seems like tournaments are getting tougher and tougher, so it is hard work. I mean, this one, I felt like I was really playing well, and, you know, can't get past the quarterfinal, so it is a long way, so I really just try to take it step by step and just, you know, match by match.
