Venus Williams didn't have much to say in her post-match press conference after her loss in the semi-final to Daria Kasatkina in Indian Wells, but the few things she said were very meaningful. Asked whether her defeats continued to hurt her as strongly as before, Venus replied, 'You don't get used to losses, ever. Anyone who gets used to losses should give up on life. I pretty much come to win tournaments, so if I don't win, I'm not happy. I'm not here for results and all that stuff.'
The 37-year-old also admitted, 'She just played a little better at the end. It was really pretty much that simple.'
Venus will play the Miami Open next. 'I guess that's what's ahead of me now. I mean, that's where my focus is going to shift to, another big event, another opportunity to play well.'
