Caroline Wozniacki


C. WOZNIACKI/M. Niculescu
6‑2, 6‑2

THE MODERATOR:  Questions, please.

Q.  How did you feel out there?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI:  Um, I felt pretty good.  I mean, it was nice weather to play in, overcast, the temperature was nice.
Yeah, I felt like it was up to me what was going to happen out there on court.
Yeah, I was pretty happy.

Q.  Did the score in the first set look easier than it actually was?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI:  I mean, we had a lot of long rallies because she got a lot of balls back.  With her slice forehand as well it was tough to finish out the point sometimes.
But I don't know.  I felt like I was in control.

Q.  Do you think at all about the whole No. 1 situation, or just not in your mind?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI:  To be honest, I just play.  I want to try to do my best here.  Whatever happens, happens.
To be honest, I've proven myself for the last two years.  I've finished No. 1 twice in a row.
For me, the most important thing is to keep improving.  If I do that, I know I can play on a very high level.
If you win matches in tournaments, then the ranking will be there automatically.  My main priority is just to try to play every match that I play.  Of course that's pretty tough, but, yeah.

Q.  You seem to come in quite a few times during this match, more than we normally see you do.  Are you starting to feel more comfortable at the net?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI:  Yeah, I mean, I've worked quite a bit on my volleys.  I still think I could have finished up a few more points up there, but I'm improving and I'm trying to move in when I can sometimes.
The last I don't know how many years I've played I've always had a two‑handed backhand volley.  I've tried to change that to a one‑hand.
It's just about getting the confidence to play with it in a real match as well.  You can do it in practice, but it's always different to play a match.
I felt like did I pretty well.

Q.  Change for more reach?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI:  Yeah, and just it looks better, too.  (Laughter.)
No, but, yeah, for more reach obviously, and then I always thought that‑‑ I mean, the proper volley is the one‑hand backhand volley, so I try to do that.
And also my one‑handed backhand slice.  I don't use it too much, but if I have to I will.
