selima was quiet happy with the result and had a lot of fun on the court. the crowd (25.ooo poeple) supported both players - at the end a little bit mor for selima, according to her bad luck in the past.

"it was a lot of fun playing again, her at my home town hamburg. the crowd was incredible. i still not play on my level, but i am not far away from it. at the moment i think i need more experience to beat such players like sabine, jelena or larissa. it was great"

when asked about medonika' attacks, she answered.

"these will have consequences, my lawyers are working - i will not have anything in common with her, so no more comments."
