. I'm not going to make up a balance sheet or any record, but you said you wanted to play for fun and have some good results as well. Did you really have fun? Do you feel you did what you wanted to?

NATHALIE TAUZIAT: Well, I had made a couple of goals. That was okay. But other matches, no. Well, I decided I wanted to call it this year. It was a good moment physically and mentally. I can't do these events as I used to do them before, one after the other. I have to stop now, not next year. Next year maybe I would be down in a deep hole in agony.

Q. It's not all over. Fed Cup comes next week, right?

NATHALIE TAUZIAT: Right, that's right. This is quite a different event. This has nothing to do with what we're doing here. My personal career is going to end now, not on the French team because it's not the same thing. I'll be surrounded by teammates, by girls. This is something totally different. Here my personal career with my personal coach and team is over. This is something different. I can thank so many people around me, Regis, for 20 years he gave me everything to get me where I got. I'm deeply in deep gratitude. My physical coach did so much for me, too. My family gave me a lot of support, in good and hard moments. My sponsors for 20 years. My racquet, Babolat, Lacoste, Nike. I've always been with exactly the same people for 15, 20 years. They trusted me. Then you, the journalists, I have to mention you. Sometimes you cracked down on me, then you helped me to get up again. You have to see all this together. You are not 18 years alone on the tour. That's all. I'm glad I'm here this week. Let's not overdo it or exaggerate. I'm glad I'm here. I'm not really hating this week. I came here. It's okay if I lose, but I wanted to play a better match. I might have lost in any tournament today, but I wouldn't have been satisfied. This being the last one, this is especially hard for me. I'm not satisfied the way I played. This is why I'm a bit disappointed. That there's an end one day, that's okay, I decided.
