Yes, yes, I'm very happy that I finally got through this match, beat No. 7 in the world. It's my best win so far. So I'm really happy the way I play today and felt really strong on the court physically, mentally.
Daniela Hantuchova
Well, I like to – the game of serve and volley, but it's very tough, you know, against the best players because they return so good and their passing shots are really good. So it's really tough to get there with those players.
Daniela Hantuchova
I mean, every single time I was there with Mahesh, I just tried to learn something of his game, because he's, you know, one of the best doubles players that's been around ever.
Daniela Hantuchova
I'm visiting my high school. Every half year I do the exams, and then this year I'm going to graduate.
Daniela Hantuchova
Well, I think, you know, the university and the high schools are also important, but depends how I'm going to do in tennis – well, I hope. I mean, it depends, so I don't know yet.
Daniela Hantuchova
That's what I've been always saying, that I was always using the mixed doubles especially to improve my net game and being able to return a guy's serve, 'cause then when you play someone like Serena, you are little bit more prepared for that.
Daniela Hantuchova
Well, actually I don't care what surface I'm playing on.
I mean, it's been quite busy, especially with the rain delay the first few days, and then having to play the late evenings, waiting here every day. It's been kind of difficult.
Daniela Hantuchova
But just maybe sometimes being even more patient. Even though I thought I did that much better this year, and sometimes, you know, make my opponents play that one extra ball, and just knowing how to play the big points better.
Daniela Hantuchova
I was not fighting myself at all as I used to.
I started when I was six years old. My first coach was my granny, she was the best player in Slovakia.
Daniela Hantuchova
Yeah, I think there are many other important things in life, not just tennis.
Daniela Hantuchova
I really enjoyed every minute of it. I mean, I've learned so much in the last week, I mean, just the way to play a real, real doubles. It was a great experience for me, and we had a lot of fun.
Daniela Hantuchova
It was a great time here in the States this year, and definitely I feel like I'm playing well again. I gained a lot of confidence in the last couple of weeks, and I just have to, you know, keep going and keep the momentum now.
Daniela Hantuchova
As I said this year, I didn't try to put any pressure on me by setting high goals or anything, I just want to make sure that every single time I'm out there on the court I do my best, I give 100%, and see where it's going to end up next year.
Daniela Hantuchova
Rome is my most favorite city, so I really enjoy to stay here and the whole tournament.
