            Jelena Dokic 

            I needed time to re-group and maybe come back but it I guess it 
            worked for me, I don't like the no sit down after the first game but 
            you know, they are the rules and you have to play by them. 

            What bought about the main change in your game do you think - having 
            lost the first set so easily and convincingly? 

            Well, I think it was more mental than anything, I just made too many 
            errors, wasn't moving my feet, they just weren't there. It was good 
            to re-group and come back, and you know win a match like this, I 
            still didn't play my best tennis, no where near it. Like I said it 
            is good to win a tough three set match like this especially since a 
            player like her. 

            How important is the crowd here at the Dome? 

            Oh, they have helped me through it, I don't think that I would have 
            done it without them, it is great, they were with me the whole time 
            and to have someone support you it is great, Australian fans are 
            just unbelievable. 

            Certainly the match of the tournament, sit back now and enjoy the 

            Thank you.
