Ana Ivanovic


THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. How do you feel about that match?
ANA IVANOVIC: Well, definitely I'm very happy, obviously. I was a little bit nervous going onto the, you know, first-time night session Grand Slam. It was also a little bit windy in the beginning. But I tried to focus, you know, moving my feet, getting around the ball and just committing to my shots.
So I was really happy the way I started and also the way I handled the match. I'm pleased with my performance.

Q. How important to get through in pretty quick time?
ANA IVANOVIC: Yeah, that was definitely important, saving some nerves for later on. I mean, she's not an easy opponent, so I knew if I gave her chances, she could come back. So I just tried to focus on my service game in that second set. I managed to hold my service in the last game, which I thought was really important.

Q. I think you played much better than the first game. Do you agree with that?
ANA IVANOVIC: Yeah, definitely. You know, I learned something from that first match. Today I tried to focus more on my game, be a little bit less emotional, just committing more to my shots. I was really happy with the result. And I really hope I can keep this level for the next games.

Q. What do you think of your next opponent?
ANA IVANOVIC: Yeah, we had a tough match last week. Obviously she has some wins under her belt, too. It's gonna be tough match, that's for sure.
But, you know, I really want to focus on my game and try to enjoy it like I did tonight and just, yeah, hope for the best. But definitely I have chances.

Q. Do you think she will try to get something out of her coach that can help her?
ANA IVANOVIC: Yeah, maybe, but, you know, we all watch each other's matches a bit. If she watched the match today, she could see some things, if she could.
You know, I don't want to think about that. I have my own game plan and the way I want to focus and prepare for that match. But, as I said, you know, I have nothing to hide. I just want to be aggressive and play my game.
