What does qualifying for the Wimbledon main draw mean to you?
It means a lot, especially since I came to London completely unprepared. I arrived one day before qualifying and I only trained one hour on grass. I was very relaxed in all my matches.
What do you hope for from the Radwanska match-up. Are you planning to follow a special strategy?
I hope escape my nerves quickly and manage (to play) a good match. The girls -the other Romanians at Wimbledon- told me how she plays and what I should expect from her. It remains to be seen if I can play my game.
I understand you want to attack the Polish [player 's game]
If I won't be nervous and everything were to go according to plan, that's about how things should work out. I will try to impose my game and not wait for Agnieska's mistakes.
How will you try to get rid of your nerves? Do you have a special method?
I don't have a method to overcome my nerves. It's normal to have them a few hours before the match and even at the beginning of a game. I will see how things stand once the match starts.
You're a clay court player because you played more on this slow surface. How do you feel on grass?
I love playing on grass and even though this only the second year I'm playing [on the surface], I could say its my new favorite surface. My game matches up better with hard courts, but I haven't played more on fast courts because for many years I was almost always injured over the winter. In the summer, we tend to play on clay more in Europe.
What's your dream for Wimbledon 2014?
It already came true here, in a way. As a result, I just want to enjoy my first round match. Regardless of the end result, I only have something to win.
One last question. What do you wish for this season?
First of all, to be healthy and be able to train more.
Sounds like a rough past couple of months for her. Glad she put things together in qualifying here.
