Morkovina wins despite ankle injury

Dorissya Morkovina: I played solid in the first and third set today. I was going for the lines and I hit them. But I still don't know what the hell happened in the second set. I just wasn't there.

At the beginning of the third set, I rolled my right ankle pretty badly so I called for the trainer and I got a taping. I was hurting throughout the final set but it made me a better player because I had to concentrate on hitting a winner on the first or second shot to keep to points short.

I'll play against Paterson in the final round of qualies and I don't know a lot about her games and strategies since she doesn't seem to support the junior tour. I also thought she had retired. I believed that you had to play junior to play some pro events but it doesn't look that way. What can I do..
, said Morkovina after her 7-6(5), 1-6, 6-1 win.

Imagine if the real pros decided to retire as quick as all the girls on the FWTT tour. There would be no one ranked outside the top 50.

Pre-Open Interview with Anjelica de la Courtiere

Q. Welcome to New York, Anjelica.
DLC: Oh, thank you.

Q. Tell us how important it is for you to do well here, considering your play since the French Open.
DLC: Well, every event if important, but this is a grand slam, so of course it matters a lot to me. I've been in the semifinals here before, and I know that I can play well here. My success level since the French has not been where I wanted it to be, I've been struggling a lot, but I'm still working hard and hopefully I can put together some wins and make a run here. Besides the French, this is certainly the most important event of the year to me.

Q. Some have criticized you, saying that you've been alouf and lackadasical since you won the tournament that was your goal to win. They say you haven't really been putting much effort into your matches.
DLC: Well, I think that's nonsense. I try very hard every time I step out on the court with no exceptions. I don't really know what to say to that... I've had some letdowns but I train hard and play hard.

Q. Your relationship with Eva Sorrenta has been publicized as continuing to deteriorate, yet you still play doubles together. Do you talk much anymore? Do you have plans to continue your professional relationship?
DLC: I don't talk to Eva outside of the tennis courts at all anymore. I don't think I'm her favorite person in the world right now, and I understand that and want to give her her space. As far as our partnership is concerned, we don't really work all that well as a team anymore... but that has been happening ever since we lost the Australian Open final this year. I just don't know, right now I think that this year may be our last together.

Q. You've mentioned that you'd like to start a family with your husband, Juan Carlos Ferrero. Is there a possibility that this is your last year on tour?
DLC: I'm not really ready to answer that right now. I do want a family but now isn't a good time. If I leave the tour it's because I feel like it isn't as important to me anymore, or that there is something else I would rather do. I don't know if I will play after this year, but who really knows? Anyone on tour could wake up tomorrow and know that this is their last day, or week, or year. It's just hard to say when you're ready to hang up your racquet.

Q. Thanks and good luck, Anjelica.
DLC: Thanks.

ZERENE FERNANDEZ/Marie-Eve Larouche 7-5 4-6 7-6(4)

Interview with Zerene Fernandez

Q. Congratulations on your win, you played a tough match today.
ZF: It was a good match for me, I think I fought very well until the end and managed to win. It was good.

Q. You've made a lot of fuss about the fact you were forced into the qualifying draw for entering late, is that still on your mind?
ZF: Yes, I want to win more than ever to prove that I belong in the main draw, as I should have been. It is silly that I was left out when everyone has historically been put in the draws of slams. I've been shafted a lot in my career and I'm really not happy about it. Also, the time allowed for commitments is so short that lots of people miss it. It's just really silly and the rules need to be changed.

Q. Looking ahead, so you feel that you will qualify for the main draw, and if so, how do you think you will perform there?
ZF: I've worked very hard in the last weeks to be ready for this tournament. I do think I will qualify. The main draw, I don't know. I still don't have a lot of experience in the tour matches. Hopefully I can adjust well and win a match in the main draw, but there are a lot of talented girls and it's a big thing to advance in the slams.

Q. Thank you, Zerene.
ZF: Of course.
