I still feel very shocked. Like, I felt like
the match wasn’t completely done, but it was done, you know? It’s one of those moments where you’re fighting
so hard. When it’s finally over, you’re still in the state of, like, competitiveness. I felt like I didn’t want to have any regrets.
I think if I didn’t regroup after the second set, then I would have looked back on this
match and probably cried or something, so … I just thought to myself that this is my second
time playing a final. I can’t really act entitled. To be playing against one of the best players
in the world, to lose a set, suddenly think that I’m so much better than her that that
isn’t a possibility. Yeah, I mean, I forgot to smile. I was told
to smile and I didn’t. I was panicking. Yeah, I’m going to be thinking about that for the
rest of today. Yeah, I mean, people were talking about being
No 1 if I win this tournament. I was able to accomplish that. But the ranking was never
my real goal, it was just to win this tournament. Maybe if I see my sister I can be, like, Guess
who is the No 1 tennis player? Me!
