An Interview With Anna Kournikova

Q. Congratulations. That first set could've gone either way couldn't it?

ANNA KOURNIKOVA: Yeah well, I was leading the whole way, 3-love, 5-3, 6-5, so it was kind of going my way. It was tough, but I'm happy it went my way.

Q. You've been working a lot on your serve, there was a lot of talk about your serve last year. But today as the match progressed, I felt you got more confident.

ANNA KOURNIKOVA: Yeah, I haven't had any problems with my serve. Everything has been the same.

Q. You must've known you'd be in for a tough match with Sabine?

ANNA KOURNIKOVA: I knew that she was a tough player. She's twenty something, so it's very tough, and she really fights to the end.

Q. Well you did that out there today. Congratulations, a winner over Sabine Appelmans.
A. Thank you.
