U.S. OPEN Wednesday, September 9, 2015 Victoria Azarenka Press Conference S. HALEP/V. Azarenka 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 An interview with: VICTORIA AZARENKA THE MODERATOR: Questions, please. Q. You played so well. You fought so, so hard out there tonight.
What are your emotions? Disappointment? What are your thoughts?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: I think I played well. I believe I could have played better. I did really fight really hard, and I was trying to find solutions. She played really well today.
I was a little bit surprised by the pace of her ball, to be honest. I think that, you know, a couple of free points that I gave away today cost me the match a little bit. Q. Seeing how Petra was out in the morning, a big opportunity, you played Serena well here in a couple of finals, two three-setters with her.
Is there a sense that maybe you could get to her in this tournament? Does that put you under any more pressure in this match? Did you feel it was a great opportunity for you going into this?
VICTORIA AZARENKA: No, I didn't really look into that because I knew I had a tough match today.
So I was just trying to play today and win today. That didn't happen. That's out of the question. Q. You fought hard to come back into this match. You were up in the third set. Do you think maybe what you could have done to go up 3-Love before the rain, or...
VICTORIA AZARENKA: Maybe.
You know, I don't know. It's tough to say what could have happened. I just tried to accept what happened and learn from it, just improve, because thinking of what could have happened is pointless to me.
