Spears ready to kick ass
After a poor performance in half of the season, Spears is ready to win this time, well at least she's trying this time. Spears, who was given WC in this tournament, have a very difficult task in the first round facing Ruflina Taliamanosoko.
Q. Rachel, whatever happened in the first half of the season?
Rachel Spears : (smiling) I must say, I was too lazy. I was not scouting oppoent's strategy before playing. I was just like hopefully i can win.
Q. Lack of determination?
Rachel Spears : Yeah, that the word. I was not really go for a win. Instead before playing, I was like shit, I'm gonna get kicked again this time.
Q. So what's your expectation this time?
Rachel Spears : Definately something better than the first half. I want at least to reach quarters or semis. One step at a time.
Q. Even in this tournament?
Rachel Spears : Yeah, I guess. But this time, it's kinda tough. My first encounter with Ruflina. It's gonna be tough. But I'll try.
Q. What is your chances?
Rachel Spears : Very Little. But again, there is always a chance. Moreover I like hardcourt. And in front of my people, I promised to do my best.
Q. What about doubles?
Rachel Spears : I'm still trying to find permanent one
It's seems hard. (smiling) I mean, most players had commited with other players. Moreover, I need to adjust my commitments if I have found one.
Q. Any feelings for not being chosen to play for USA in Fed Cup
Rachel Spears : (smiling) not at all. C'mon. There are so many players that are better than me. Bryanne told me about it. I was cool with it. And USA had stayed in the WG. So I'll try next year.
Q. Well, that's it for today. Good Luck
Rachel Spears : Thanks
