Towards the end I felt like I let her play a little bit and she really went for her shots, so I had to adjust a little bit better, and it took a little bit longer, but I'm glad that I closed out the first set.

I improved a few things from the first round, like the serve and coming to the net more. I stuck to the game plan and was happy with how I played."

    Na lost to her next opponent, Laura Robson, last year in the 3rd round at Flushing Meadows.

    Na said: "Since last year, I think both of us have improved a lot. I'm really looking forward to possibly playing against her again. For sure it'll be challenging because she's a lefty and an aggressive player."

    Serena said: "I played well. I played really well. I was just more focused than anything. I like to believe there is always room for improvement though. I haven't really thought about it yet, but off the bat, I think it was very difficult to hit a big serve today because of the winds, and I didn't get my serve up as much as I wanted to. But I don't know. I do think I definitely played well tonight." WTA story

    About her semifinal opponent, Li Na, Serena said: I think the challenge of playing someone like [Na] is how do you beat a player that does everything so well? I'm going to have to think about that and come up with an answer to that in the next couple days... We've always played really close. Maybe next time we play she might want to go from close to a win. I have to be ready for that."

    Victoria said: "It was a little bit tricky with the wind, and Daniela is the kind of player who doesn't give you rhythm, so you have to try to make it happen in one or two shots in the beginning. There weren't many long rallies, which can make it difficult to get into the match, but I felt like I was really good in the important moments." WTA story

    Daniela said: "I didn't feel like I played my best tennis today... Throughout the whole tournament my serve was working great, just not tonight. I'm very disappointed... [Victoria has] always been very solid and she doesn't give you anything for free. She makes very few mistakes and moves extremely well too. I knew what to expect. like I said, it was just from my side. I didn't bring the best out of me."

It started from the beginning of the match until the end of the match. But I was happy that at least I was fighting a lot on the court. Even if I wasn't playing my best tennis, I was still fighting and I'm still in the tournament. I think that's something even better than the last round. Even when I lost the second set, I still felt like, 'Okay, it's still one set all. You still have a chance. Let's just try to go point by point and hang in there, and just stay out there on the court and fight.'" WTA story
