Yes, but really short due to delays I guess

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. Actually what I wanted to ask you was the delays, the blackout, the rain.
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Yeah.
Q. How did that affect you? What did you do? Play Ping‑Pong or what in between?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: No, I was just trying to find a quiet corner where I could just rest and just wait it out, I guess.
You know, I have been on the tour for many years and I have been part of a few delays. Maybe not a power outage, but you treat it as maybe a rain delay and you go in, and as soon as you have to get out and just be ready, do a quick warmup, and be ready for the match.
Q. Was the blackout a surprise?
MARIA SHARAPOVA: Of course it was. It was a bigger surprise that it was on all around the outer courts as well, not just the stadium.
