Interview with Venus Williams

Q. Did you scare yourself today, in the second set especially?

VENUS WILLIAMS: No. I mean, sometimes tennis isn't always won as quick as you want. I think she really played some good tennis. She made some good shots and fought really hard, fought hard for that second set, and it was just important to close it out in the third.

Q. How were you feeling before starting the game?

VENUS WILLIAMS: Oh, I felt good. I mean, I knew she was going to bring a lot of balls back and try to play aggressive when she could. I've seen her play.

So I felt good about the match before, yeah.

Q. No pressure at all?

VENUS WILLIAMS: You know, the only pressure I have is the pressure I put on myself, so I try not to put too much.

Q. Tell us about the conditions today.

VENUS WILLIAMS: Yeah, it was strange with the raining and no raining. It was just important to concentrate, because you can only beat your opponent.

You can't beat the weather. So if it rains, it rains. But thankfully I got through before it started.
