Amelie Mauresmo

ROME, A. MAURESMO/M. Hingis 6-4, 7-6

THE MODERATOR: First question, please.

Q. Today you played a very good match. What do you think needs to improve in your game?

AMELIE MAURESMO: To improve my game?

Q. Yes, because you played perfectly.

AMELIE MAURESMO: Yeah, I played perfectly. I feel I played a good match, and I was there mentally and physically in the important moments. So that probably made the difference today. I still probably have to improve -- I had some up and downs sometimes, you know, some games I just lost (inaudible) games so on these things I'm sure I can improve.

Q. Could you compare today's match with the match you had against Martina two weeks ago?

AMELIE MAURESMO: Well, for me it was different. I start the match much better than I did last time, you know, being very relaxed and just playing my game. I know how she plays, she knows how I play, so, you know, trying to make the right shot at the right time to not let her come in, you know, she likes to dictate the game. So I was trying to just not let her do that. And, you know, I think I played better tennis this time.

Q. What are your feelings about the game tomorrow?

AMELIE MAURESMO: I saw just a little bit of the first semifinal because I was just focusing on the time, not really on the game. (Inaudible.) I think Dokic is playing very well these days. Beating Conchita two easy sets on clay court is not easy. So, you know, looking forward for this one.

Q. This is your year. You're winning a lot and you're playing your best tennis. What has changed in your life?

AMELIE MAURESMO: (Smiling.) I know, I know, but it's always the same question. It's work. I mean, it's no secret. Being more relaxed, I mean you can see on the court I'm much more relaxed than I used to be. I play -- I'm more confident in my game, I know how to play and I know what my game is now. So, you know, physically I feel good, everything's going well.
