We continue our stint in the East, as we head to Bangalore this week. The last couple of weeks have seen the unseeded players take OWTT by storm. Will they continue to impress or will the top girls stamp their authority once more?

Venus Williams - Tuesday, 21 October, 2008

http://img144.imageshack.us/img144/2341/capte998c96ef67b45728c8rr3.jpg

Q: What are your comments on your match?

VW: Well, I had time to think about it. I think Sveta played good tennis today - definitely I have to give a lot of credit to her but I made a lot of mistakes. I didn't play the game I wanted to play.

Q: Do you think you're still improving in your game?

VW: Yes, I definitely think I'm still improving. That's my goal: to be better every tournament.

Q: What is your opinion about Alicia Molik's gameplan?

VW: I think she is ballbasher, thats all.

Q: What do you expect of the season? How many titles do you want to win, or any particular tournament you want to win?

VW: You know, my goal is to play well in every tournament I'm entered in but I would love to win the Grand Slams, and I would love to hear about Tatiana Golovin's retirements.

Q: Thank you Venus!

Congratulations to Alicia Molik, who battled her way to the final through qualifying, with some tough matches and opponents along the way. However, she had no such troubles dispatching Cornet today - Molik was brimming iwth confidence today and knew what she wanted to do and she executed it perfectly - nicely done! Good to see Cornet back on form though, with a nice few wins from her :)
