: After the narrow defeat against Maria Sharapova : Are you sorely disappointed that there is no individual medal for you?
: I really wanted to win a medal, which unfortunately did not work out. There is something else, if you're not on their own plays, but competes for his country. Now this is a pity. But you must learn to cope with defeats.
: It was a thrilling game, sometimes at a very high level.
: I have not done anything wrong. It was a great match - and you can not choose the draw. Maria Sharapova is a top player who is up front in the world rankings. We played for nearly three hours, they took the ball in the end a little bit cleaner and pitched better. In such games there are really only a few small things that make all the difference.
: There were a total of 232 rallies, many of them have lasted very long.
: I was always tuned in almost every rally. If I had played badly, then it would have been something else, but I'm out with a good feeling. There were sometimes only millimeters, such as the Cross ball at my service game in the third set.
: Since you had before the impact of Sharapova broken. As indeed in every sentence - they made a break and immediately after you have lost her service game.
: Really? Not you?
: Yes. In each set.
: Wow. It has generally served better in the important moments. I've had to fight my breaks hard, but my serve has wobbled the whole match on a bit. Especially in the second set when I was ahead and thought that I can go on the passage, there came the first serve is not the way I wanted. These are the little dots here and there that cost a then at the end of the game.
