APIA INTERNATIONAL SYDNEY


January 6, 2014


Jarmila Gajdosova


SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES

L. DAVIS/J. Gajdosova
6‑4, 7‑6


THE MODERATOR:テつ Questions, please.

Q.テつ What did you make of that?テつ Things got pretty tight in the second set.テつ Couple of set points.テつ A little bit unlucky there.
JARMILA GAJDOSOVA:テつ Yeah, look, I had a lot of chances.テつ I was 4‑2 up.テつ I thought I start pretty well.テつ When it gets such a score, it really can go either way.
I tried to play as well as I could.テつ Unfortunately, made too many errors when it counted and maybe few bad shot selection, bad choices I made.
But I think I'm still missing a lot of match play.テつ I'm not used to seeing certain situations and balls coming my way.テつ It's going to be a long process back, but I can take the positives out it of it ‑ hopefully there were some ‑ and move on.

Q.テつ Overall how are you feeling with yourself and your game?
JARMILA GAJDOSOVA:テつ There are good things, bad things.テつ There is still a lot that needs to be improved.テつ It's not definitely where I want it to be.
Physically I feel okay.テつ Not great.テつ I'm still very tired.テつ I think the two hours in the sun took a lot out of me, and I just finished doubles as well.テつ My body is not quite used to such long matches so many points and stuff like that.
So it's still a long ways away, but I think I can only try to train and hope it's going to get better.

Q.テつ A mixed afternoon and the doubles.テつ Rather take the singles win than the doubles?
JARMILA GAJDOSOVA:テつ It's still nice to get a win.テつ Makes your day a little bit better.
It's still nice.テつ I need some matches under my belt and some wins as well to give me some confidence for my singles.
I think I struggle a bit with that considering I haven't played for almost nine months.テつ It's not easy for me right now. テつI try to do the right things and be positive and fight as much as I can, but it's not easy if you haven't played.テつ It's not easy losing.
As I say, it's still a long way away.テつ Hopefully take positives out of it and it'll get better.

Q.テつ What are your plans for 2014?テつ I mean, with ranking where it's at, what do you do to chip away at it and get back into the top 100 and go from there?
JARMILA GAJDOSOVA:テつ Well, right now I still have Australian Open, so if I could actually win a round finally, then, you know, the hundred points will move me heaps forward.
The last two weeks of points that I had to defend from Brisbane and Hobart last year, so pretty much anything I'm going to win right about now it's going to help my ranking.
I will try to play a couple challengers after Australian Open, one in Burnie and then one in Launceston.テつ I play FedCup as long as I get nominated.
And then I was planning ongoing to Brazil for the two tournaments, one on clay and one on hard.テつ I don't think I'm going to make it to Indian Wells and Miami with my ranking, so I will have to train a little bit and try to play some smaller events, challengers.
As I said, it's a long way back, so it's going to take a while.
