A POST-MATCH INTERVIEW WITH: JILL CRAYBAS
SECOND ROUND WIN OVER ELENA DEMENTIEVA, (ret.)
6-4, 3-2

Q. Could you tell she was having trouble out there when she retired?
JILL CRAYBAS: No. Actually I was very surprised when she called the trainer. I saw her yesterday. I knew she had been in the training room, and I knew yesterday I saw like a bandage on her foot or whatever, but I didn't get any indication that she was hurting.

Q. Does it feel like a win or does it take any of the luster off of it when she retired, even though you were in control looked like the majority of the match?
JILL CRAYBAS: Well, I tend to be the type of person that likes to finish the match. But I mean it does. It does count as a win, so it feels like one because it counts, no matter. Even from the first point, as long as you play one point, then that's it.

Q. What went right for you? Looked like she was struggling a little bit with her serve. What helped you take control of it?
JILL CRAYBAS: Yeah. I watched her in the match yesterday, and I know she double?faulted. She tended to double fault a lot in the first set. I didn't see the second set. I knew before I went on the court, I knew I had to put some pressure on her second serve because that tends to happen with her. I don't know if that's normal, because I haven't seen her play that much, but I knew she had been struggling with her serve lately, so I just kept trying to apply pressure, and I got a few free points here and there on her serve.

Q. Is this kind of a continuation of a little bit of a roll for you? Looks like you've been in some quarters this year. How do you think things are shaping up for you this season?
JILL CRAYBAS: This year has been great for me so far. I've been working a lot on my mental game, and that's helped me tremendously as far as going after your shots, because I used to be considered really consistent. And I'm still pretty consistent, but to take some chances as well, and it's okay if you miss a few here and there, but you just gotta keep being aggressive. And that's my main goal so far this year, and it's been working out well.
