Serena's QF Inteview?

I can't find it on the RG site yet. This is all I can find:

``This year I really made it tough on myself by not performing and making a lot of errors ... and by basically not doing anything on a professional level,'' Williams said. ``I was an amateur today.''

That's a little harsh. For anyone that saw the match (I don't get it for 2 more hours), was she that bad?

it usually takes a while for them to put the interviews on the site check back in a couple of hours

RG is slower than a valley girl doing long division.

give them time.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

I think Serena needed to say something like this to herself.

Serena is always self-depreciating in defeat. what else is new...

In the first set she really was bad....she couldn´t convert any breakpoints...but after the first set she cleaned up.....

Always bet on black!

Why doesn't give credit to Capriati? Maybe she did in the rest of the interview, but that would not make it better...

^ hmmm in Jen's interview it said that Serena complimented Cap's game... but i doubt that would matter to your kind.

NEWS FLASH: IF SERENA IS ASKED ABOUT THE MATCH, SHE WILL DISCUSS WHAT SHE DID RIGHT/WRONG. thx for paying attention to her press conferences for the last eight years. drive thru.

well, serena was really playing horridly... actually, jennifer wasn't playing much better. but she was better. yeah, the whole affair was just error strewn even though most of the rallies weren't tt long. not a good match at all...

there´s an article at bbc and you can hear a little bit of serena´s interview:

I am a fighter. Others give up but I don't. I just dig deeper.

I saw the first set... it was seriously poor, from both girls. Brainless, panicky, inconsistent and error-strewn. I've said in the past that Serena's post-match comments can have a few sour grapes in them... but after today, I completely understand what she's saying.
