Transcript for the on-court exchange between Masha and Michael
Here's the first exchanged between Michael and Masha:
Michael: ...(missed the first part) You keep serving to the same place every time. She's not an idiot, but you've got to believe. Two things, on this side here look (pointing to the court,) your toss is going way up front all the time.
Masha: You can see that from way up there?
Michael: Well, that's why you're missing the serve all the time, it's going too far in front. And second of all you, I mean the girl got completely lucky. You served a good game at 5-4, she got lucky and you're acting like, she's calm as can be, and you're acting like you're a maniac. You're trying to stay focused, but your mind, you've got to believe that you can beat her and hang tough and quit worrying about what she's doing all the time. You've got to worry about your side of the court and that's it.
Transcript from the second on-court exchange between Michael Joyce and Masha:
Michael: Your whole attitude changed.
Masha: Well, because at 40-Love I couldn't put a serve in.
Michael: So you're going to let it bother you for two games? Listen, I'm just telling you one thing, you've got to take care of your side of the court, that's it. You do your stuff and hang tough. You stay mentally tough, you never let anything bother you, you never get frustrated, and that's it. And you keep going up to you serve like you did this last game. She's going to hit great returns, big deal, let her hit it. Don't worry, you're going to hit great returns too. Ok?
Michael: You just be tough and that's it and you got to believe you're going to beat this b-uhh girl. OK?
Michael: (laughter) I almost slipped up there, huh?
