An Interview With MARTINA HINGIS:
Q. What happened today in your match?
MARTINA HINGIS: You saw it.
Q. Yes. How did you feel?
MARTINA HINGIS: She played a good match. I won the first set and I should maybe feel like this; then the next two sets, too, but I didn't, I changed my game and I played so badly.
Q. What do you mean you changed your game?
MARTINA HINGIS: Play more powerful with everything on the court.
Q. Was there a problem adjusting in the second set?
MARTINA HINGIS: What?
Q. The second set?
MARTINA HINGIS: I changed my rackets and everything. I couldn't find my timing and the groundstrokes?
Q. Did you underestimate her?
MARTINA HINGIS: Maybe a little bit.
Q. What made you underestimate her, you think?
MARTINA HINGIS: Her ranking is not that great and also she won the qualifyings and the first round, shouldn't do that, but in the last time I won good matches against Japanese girls, but she has a different game.
Q. What was it about her game that gave you trouble?
MARTINA HINGIS: She could play very high groundstrokes. She can play very good. She could open the court.
Q. What can you take away from a loss like this --
MARTINA HINGIS: We'll see.
Q. -- besides bad feelings?
MARTINA HINGIS: I have to train more and make better practice.
Q. Is there anything specific that you need to work on from this match?
MARTINA HINGIS: Yes, I mean especially the groundstrokes and the serves, she returns very good, but normally not every girl can return that great like her today, but the serve was not that great.
