Q Today, you two started playing well on the first set, but seemed to lose some concentrations on the second?
Ａ：Martina: We never lost our concentration. We just made some errors that we were not supposed to, couldn't stick with the plan and it didn't work well.
Q You announced your retirement after this season. Is this your last match in Japan? Did you feel anything special?
A : Martina: That was my last match in Japan. I didn't feel anything special. So far I have just played my best tennis on each match.with managing my schedule in the tour. so I am disappointed about losing the match today.
Q What did make efforts technically and physically to keep playing with being a top player for the last 30 years?
A :Martina: It's not only for tennis. You could say this to all sports. You just do your best everyday, and keep your motivations, that's it. Physically, including my hard training, many of specialists have supported me. I have enjoyed training and each process of that. I think it's more pleasure to overcome the problems. Of course, there's a time that everything goes well, and not.
Q We heard you went to see the practice of Sumo wrestlers during this tournament?
Ａ:Lisa: On our free time, the tournament organizer took us to the practice of Sumo wrestlers. Also, we could eat with them. That'll be the most memorable experience for me. Besides the tournament, that was the highlight.
Martina: When they practice on the ground, Asashoryu(Yokozuna:Champion) came to the room and gave his students many advice. They offered us to eat Chanko. That was an unbelievable experienece.
Q When you came to Japan for the first time, what did you do, and my second question is, any advice for young Japanese players?
A：Martina: My first visit to Japan was 1975... played doubles here. It was a hard week here. To decide the seeded player, we went to Tokyo and Osaka...and one more city...I forgot where... Chris Evert participated too. I received a watch from Seiko as a gift. I gave it to my mother. It is still working well. Though the week was hard, everything was new, so I was looking around, that I remember.
To your second question, maybe it's not just for Japanese players, but to all of young players, just do love what you do, and do your best. You should enjoy the process of achieving the goal you set. Winning the tournament, jumping up in the ranking, anything you can name of, but if you can't enjoy the process of achiving your goal、it's going to be meanless. That's my advice.
