THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. You told us about, dancing, you didn't like your
dancing skills that much.
ANA IVANOVIC: No, I don't have very good dancing skills, but
I would love to -- I think it's really nice. If you can
dance, I think it looks good, really nice.
My relatives, she's talented, she's a great dancer, and she
also have very good voice, she sings very well. I wish I had
Q. You want to talk about that match a little bit?
ANA IVANOVIC: Yeah, it was a tough match. I think we both
played really good tennis. In the first set I had quite a
few miss-hits, which were a little bit disappointing. But,
still, I thought I fought pretty well.
In that second set I started playing little bit better.
Obviously holding my serve was the key in that second set,
and she really didn't drop her level much.
I had that chance in that game when she was serving on
5-All, and we had one really good point at 15-Love for her,
and then she made two double faults. I just saw my
opportunity, and I was really happy I could win that game
and hold my serve.
And then the third set I think I just basically played point
by point and didn't think, you know, about the final score
too much. I knew I had to work hard for each point, and I
did that well. So I was really happy about that.
Q. It's been kind of a tough tournament for you. You had
the three setter the first match, too.
ANA IVANOVIC: Yeah, but I think today's match was a lot
different than the first round one, especially the first
round was so windy that, you know, it's very hard to judge.
But today I think was great quality tennis, especially in
that third set.
Q. What did you talk about with Sven after the second
ANA IVANOVIC: Well, obviously we have great communication,
and, you know, he first let me express my feelings, and then
he gives me some advice. He said, you know, I told him I
start to feel better on the court and start to be more
dominant and he said, Yeah, you're just fighting great. Just
keep doing that. Make her play more balls and try to be more
aggressive, and I did that well, so I was really happy.
