Johanna Konta Wimbledon 2017 second round press conference

November 18, 2019

Both of us deserved to win.
I think it was one of those matches where, yeah, it was going to just be decided
at the very last minute. I feel very fortunate to have come through that. So, yeah, it was a great battle to be a part of. I mean, I think the reasons for that is
because we have got great players. I think that’s probably a good enough reason. Well, there were many. It was interesting.
It kind of went in stages. At one point there was a lot, and then actually towards the end of the match,
I don’t think there were that many. But I definitely have taken home a few both in my belly and in my bags. I’m pretty sure I have. I didn’t think about it. I’d rather not. Being on a home Centre Court is pretty special. And the crowd are what also make that special for me,
their support for us. I think for both Donna and myself
the appreciation that they showed,
00:01:10,250 —>00:01:13,500
the battle that we showcased,
I think that was pretty amazing. You guys keep talking about this pressure, and I guess I keep sounding like a broken record, but for me, pressure is a very self-imposed thing. I’m approaching this event like I am every other event. I’m coming here to do the best that I can,
to compete the best I can. I think I showed that today,
like I did in my other round. like I did in my other round.
Like I did, I believe, in 99% of the matches I’ve played, I look to do the best that I can,
and I’m hoping to be involved here for the full two weeks.

00:01:43,210 –>00:01:46,120
But again, what was shown today, there is no easy match,
there is no easy opponents. Every single woman in the draw
can play at a very high level on any given day. I’m just really enjoying these challenges
and tests that I’m being faced with.

    Whingeing Aussie defector with Zola Budd-type opportunistic parents? Competent all-rounder who surely should represent Australia or Hungary; being about as truly British as Greg Rusedski?

    How many of these 4 who have progressed are British born? Give Nadal £20 million – he'd be a British player tomorrow?!
    Dishing out British passports is not the way ahead.
