Agnieszka Radwanska


THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Sharapova last year at the Open, and right now you have Svetlana Kuznetsova on your board. Do you think you've found an ideal surface to beat Russian players?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Actually, it was exactly the same match: Third round in the Grand Slam, playing No. 2 on center court.
So exactly the same match, a Russian player, and so -- and both matches I had nothing to lose. Just play and try my best, and I did it twice.

Q. Does that give you confidence, now that you've played, you've beaten a big name already, can you come out in a Grand Slam and do it again?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Yeah, I'm very excited and happy. I lost against her a few times already, but it was very close, 6-3 in the third and 6-4 in the third. Finally I did it. I beat her.

Q. Did you learn much about her in those previous three matches you played against her?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Yeah, I was playing many matches against top players, so I know how to play. I have to play aggressive and try my best even if I'm losing 3-Love.

Q. Do you think you're playing well enough to keep going through the rounds and get right into a semifinal or in the final if you keep going?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I don't know. Actually, I want to be first in the quarter final here, and last year it was second. I'm already in the fourth, so I'm very happy that I did another step.

Q. Last year you were still in school at this time.

Q. But are you all done now?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Yeah, actually, I finished my school half year ago, so...

Q. Does it make tennis easier not to have those other responsibilities?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: I have more time, for sure. But now I'm doing driving lessons, so it's not...

Q. Driving lessons?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Yeah. I have exam after Australian Open, actually.

Q. Are you driving on the wrong side of the road here?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: No, not here, just in Europe.

Q. So how long is that going to take? You said you'd be taking a test right after.
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Actually I did already my driving lesson, actually the lessons, and the exam will be after the Australian Open.

Q. And you talked to us quite a bit last year about your pets.

Q. Do you still have those two pets?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Yeah, yeah. I have still two rats.

Q. Do you feel still like a teenager or a woman?
AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA: Hard to say, but normal. I feel normal, like normal person, normal player, normal girl.
