      Interview with Jelena Dokic (18 October 2001)

            Was it a tough match?

            Yea but I played her six months ago so that was also tough, and I've 
            been here for a few days, and not to play till the last day that's 
            possible is tough, but you know, it's something you have to deal 
            with, and now that it's over and done with, I'm happy.

            (Inaudible question)

            I think when she started complaining a little bit, I think that was

            know, to win as many tournaments as I have also wasn't my goal, but 
            the year has been really good for me and I have had really good 
            results on all sorts of surfaces.

            How did you find the surface here?

            A little slow I think. The other indoor tournaments that we've been 
            playing at I think were a lot quicker than this one was, but you
