a Martina's funny quote after her win against Venus

Quote:
Q. Nervous, frustrated, embarrassed? What was the different --

MARTINA HINGIS: Well, that's quite a vocabulary you put there on me (laughing).
At least I won the last point. That's what the match is about, right? That's tennis. It's a good thing that it's not lost if you lose 6-Love in the first set. And I was still fresh. That was the upside of it. I wasn't even tired by losing 6-Love. So I knew, "Okay, now two more sets to go," and it's not like three more to go (laughing).
But it's just really -- I don't play as loose or as free maybe. Hopefully, next time I play her. There's probably only two or three other players where I feel like that. Playing Lindsay at Indian Wells, or maybe her sister, or Jennifer. These are the only two or three other players where I feel like that. But the rest, it's just like, I don't know, it's new, it's refreshing, even for me. A lot of players I haven't even faced before. And maybe playing Justine and Amelie, it's also different than those three players.
I don't know. You have an explanation for that? I'm not a psychologist. I don't know why my brain functions like that. What do you think? I really don't know (laughing).
man ,she is really a funny girl!

the more it goes and the more i like her!

No, I think she's saying that it feels/ would feel like old times playing against the Williams', Davenport and Capriati but against other players it's new and different as she hasn't played them before or in the case of Mauresmo, Clijsters and Henin it's not the same as when she played them before she retired as their games have moved up a level or two since then.

Yeah she probably meant that.
Before she retired,the WS,Lindsay and Jennifer used to be her black beasts.
Of course the likes of Amelie,Justine,Kim and Monica have sometimes troubled Martina before she retired but not really as much as the four she mentionned
