Serena def. Schett 6-3, 6-2 (post-match interview)
Serena Williams - Barbara Schett 6:3, 6:2


Question (Q): How would you asess that match?
Williams: Both of us could have played better. My mum was a little disappointed.

Q: You were making some good returns today.
Willimas: Me? Not me, not today.

Q: It doesn't matter what surface you play on. When you hit the ball it stays hit. Does this concince you that you can win a clay court title?
Williams: I think the moment I get on clay my mind changes. Normally, I try and hit winners, but on clay I move the ball around more, I start to add more spin and don't go for so many winners.

Q:-
Williams: I am going to asess my match tonight. I will have to play better tomorrow, but with every round it gets better. However, I was surprised that I had to play such a tough match in my first round. A score which is 6:4, 6:3 could have been 6:1, 6:0. I like to win my matches quickly because otherwise I wear myself out too much.

Q: Is that important?
Williams: I think it is important for others.

Q: Do you work on the amount of unforced errors? Do you talk about that?
Williams: Yes, I do. Also today it was so bright out there. The last days have been gloomy and dull, but today it was really bright.

Q: Do you prefer it this way?
Williams: Yes, when it is too cold my cheeks begin to freeze.

Q: Do you find it easier to adjust to European clay?
Williams: I guess so. I had an easy time adjusting last year. I really felt good on clay.

Q: We know you and Venus are close, but did beating her for the first time free something within yourself?
Williams: Actually, it was the second time I beat her. At that time it wasn't that important because I had another match to play the next day. But we are going to play each other so many other times at Wimbledon, Roland Garros etc. At all the important matches we are going to play each other.

Q: But did it particularly free you to win agains other oponents?
Williams: No, I don't think so.

Q: I think you are talking about Key Biscayne. It looked very easy, much easier than the final.
Williams: I had a plan and I felt so much mental energy during that match that I was completely worn out. I felt mental fatigue. With the match against Venus, I was so much mentally involved.

Q: Did winning that title strenghten your self-belief or do you need bigger titles?
Williams: I never struggled with low self esteem

Q: Do you think you are one of the forerunners for the French Open?
Williams: Definitely. Without any doubt.

Q: Venus said she was going back home to get some rest. Are you staying?
Williams: Yes, I am staying. I am going to Rome.
