" On the good way "
Out of order of victory on its last two tournaments, Alize Cornet does not envisage this vacuous passage in a negative way. She prefers to concentrate on her work, even if she confesses to feel " a small melancholy " post-JO

Alize your last two tournaments ended in eliminations in the 1st round. How do you live this small blow of less indeed, the first one finally since the beginning of the year?
I saw him(it) rather well. Naturally, I am very disappointed after each of my defeats, especially after that against Amelie (Editor's note: Mauremso) in Moscow. Over there, I was really to gain(win), I played a good level and I really believed it all the match. Thus it is the defeat which more hurt me than that of Stuttgart, where I am really crossed(spent) close. But I prefer to hold(retain) the positive and to say myself that my level of tennis really increased between these two tournaments. I am on the right track and if I continue to work well, I can hope to finish this year on a good note in Zurich and in Linz. And then it is necessary to put in perspective also: a season is not made that of heights.
There are also bottoms(stockings) which it is necessary to know how to manage. If I want to claim one day to become a champion, I have to know how to manage these bad moments to bounce better.
Especially that you should not forget that you are only 18 years old, that it is about your first season full of the high level. Is not it especially physically that you accuse the blow?
No, I do not believe. More simply, I believe that this bad period is largely due at the beginning of the tournaments to indoor, which are not the ones that I wait with most impatience (smile).As would say my trainer, it is the period when I eat a little my black bread. I prefer rather tournaments in outside, on a little slower surfaces. In Moscow, I had the luck to fall on a hard rather slow where I could express all my game(set,play) well, Amelie was stronger than me …
The identity of the players who beat you these last weeks (Editor's note: Ivanovic, Dementieva, Mauresmo) does she(it) help you to put in perspective also?
It is sure that in Asia, when I lose successively against Ivanovic and Dementieva, I did not much have to blame myself. Even if I would have preferred to make at the level of my game...
In Stuttgart, on the other hand, it was the true vacuous passage, that brought me to question me. It gave me envy to work even more.
Often, after the Olympic Games, sportsmen also speak about post-Olympic decompression. Did you also feel her?
Yes. I am maybe moreover the tennis player who most felt it (smile). I had involved a lot in these Games, as much on the plan personal as tennis.Even two months later, I still think of it a lot. It was the most beautiful and the most exciting adventure of my career(quarry) until now and it is true that later, it is always hard to recover from it.Nevertheless, later, in New Haven, I had reached demies and in the US Open I had made a success of a correct route(course). I maybe believed too fast that I had made the hardest …Well, I reassure you, I am not in full depression, I just feel a small melancholy.
What does it nearly indoor to you there to express, as you say it, all your game?
It does not miss much I think. I have to believe in me, simply. A long time, I considered that I could not indeed make on short place setting and finally, I convinced myself. It had a negative impact on my confidence and today, I have to manage to convince myself that I am a player of any surfaces.I have to dare more, to go forwards and it will be my objective for the next two weeks.
Exactly, these tournaments in Zurich and in Linz, you approach them with what ambition? Still by dreaming about Masters, even if it seems impossible?
No not not, Masters, I have thought of it never really (of smile). For these two tournaments, I do not feed big ambitions.I go out of two too fast finished tournaments and there, I just want to take a maximum of points, to find some confidence(trust), to set up my game(set,play) there to indoor … As I think of being on the right track in working terms, I would like to see what it gives in competition, it would already be only to finish well this year.
