“I was in a good shape but today my opponent was much stronger than others with whom I played before. I just didn’t have any chances to win in my current shape, - concluded Russian Alisa Kleybanova after quarterfinal against Simona Halep (Romania) with the score 1/6, 1/6.
“She played great on high speed and didn’t make any mistakes, she did with the ball everything she wanted, - mentioned Alisa. – I’m not in that shape to defeat players of such class”.
In my native language they say:
A L' E' INUTIL INSEGNA' AL MUS, SI PIART TIMP E IN PLUI SI INFASTIDIS LA BESTIE!!
