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,
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.
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.
