Quotes from the news wire:
Surprisingly, I think this year is better than last year, even though I cried way more this year than I did last year, i also think that's a lesson that I learned. It's just like you have the opportunity to change the things that are happening to you, even though it might not seem like it at the moment. I definitely think that this year was somehow better.
I think I played well today. But I knew that I had to because I've played her twice before already and it was on hard court and then I didn't know what to expect today so I tried to stay as focused as I could, i'm in a really good place right now. I feel like I'm having fun playing tennis again which is always a good thing and I always play well if I have that mentality.
This match was on my racket because she (Sorribes Tormo) doesn't really have the game. She wasn't going for winners and I felt either the point was ended by me making an unforced error, or me making a winner, i feel like in the first set, I got a bit lucky there. In the second set I got a little bit unfocused and then in the third set I went zombie mode and then just thought of everything that I had to do to win.
This is something that I have been working on a lot, which is trying to get deeper in tournaments more consistently. I think I have been able to do that, but for me right now I just try to keep looking forward. So I'm not really satisfied — I am happy that I'm here, but at the same time I want to keep going. There are more matches to win.
I already know that to be here is something that a lot of people want, and I know that a few months ago I would have given anything to be in the semi-finals of a Grand Slam, but it's this weird feeling of you want to do the next big thing. And especially now that I won a Grand Slam, and I feel like I want to win another one, and I'm so close and I just want to keep going.
