Andrea Petkovic Brisbane 2014 press: "When Serena won her first slam she was my idol"

"I prefer to stay home [in Germany] as long as possible and then come here because I really like Brisbane. I have family and friends here. I'm sweating a lot but enjoying it because I've come straight from winter in Germany. I'm really enjoying getting out in the sun and getting a bit of a tan – I'm still white like a cheese it's embarrassing"

"I think it's perfect. I think it's the strongest field here in Brisbane and for me as a non seeded player this year, I have to get used to that I'm not seeded any more"

"The conditions here are perfect – same ball, same courts [as AO] and all the players are here."

"I hear a lot of players who have been injured say they never stop believing in themselves. That wasn't true for me, I doubt myself every day I really do and I stopped believing but I never stopped wanting it- that's what made the difference. Every day I still had the will and the guts to go out there and practice and go to rehab because I just love tennis."

"When Serena won her first slam I wasn't playing yet so she was my idol. Her and Steffi. Now being able to play her, that's my motivation. To be able to beat her. I think that's the case for a lot of us now – she's the one to beat. And I think that's her motivation as well, she knows she's the one to beat and everyone is going to be out there after that."

"I might get one of the big guns in the first early rounds, which is OK for me as I'm just here to have really good matches and prepare for Aussie Open."

"When I walk through the hallways here there are all the winners on the wall and actually every year I've lost to the winner so whoever I lose to here will win (laughs)."

"I love competing and I thought this was not the right way to end it, just being injured and saying farewell to the tour, I want to end on a bigger note."
