Tatiana Golovin


THE MODERATOR: Questions for Tatiana.

Q. How frustrating was that for you out there based on how you've played thus far?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: It's very annoying to lose a match like this because, you know, you feel like you're up. I have points 5-3 to go up in the second, then I could be up 3-Love in the third, and you never know how the match is going to turn around if I win those points. It's definitely very frustrating. She's a very tough player to play. She runs down everything. She's aggressive on every ball basically. So she's a great player. And to me, I feel like I need to play more of these kind of matches to really get better.

Q. You played in extreme conditions here. Today was almost ideal.

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Yeah, it wasn't very hot at all. So we can't really complain on the weather. It was just a bit windy sometimes during the match. But, I mean, that goes for both players. I think the conditions were actually pretty nice.

Q. What is it specifically that she frustrated you with, especially in the second and third?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: You know, I think I started off really well the first set. I played very well. You know, just it's tough to always keep the same level up. You know, normally if I would play like this against another like Top 20, 30 player, I would win the match. But these are Top 10 players, and the difference is there. You have to keep that level all the time. I think I haven't played that many matches against top players. You know, I just have to get used to it and really I guess try to keep the same level.

Q. Does it come out as a positive experience?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Totally. It's completely positive, you know, because I feel like, you know, I'm just a couple games away. I think she was really happy when she won that third set because, you know, she could feel that I was there and I have every chance. So to me it's definitely positive. But I just finished like 15 minutes ago, so obviously I'm upset about it.
