An interview with: A.Radwanska
Q: You are up to number three this week. Does that week like a big
RADWAŃSKA: …[inaudible]….already a couple of months.
Q: You have obviously had a lot of good results of clay bit not here.
Why do you think that is?
RADWAŃSKA: Well, I think … last year was not very good but it is just not my favourite
surface and I prefer hard surfaces…. which is strange because at home
I really love playing on clay and now I prefer hard courts. This year I
played two tournaments on clay and two semi-finals and lots of good
players and so I am really looking forward to playing here.
Q: And do you find that here is very different from Paris for example.
are the conditions here very different or are they similar to Paris?
RADWAŃSKA: No, in Paris the courts are much faster and so …. here it is the real clay
and Paris is like a different court.
Q: You said you prefer hard courts to clay even if you have played a
lot on it and your game seems to be suited to it. Can you tell us
something about this? Why you don't feel so comfortable on it?
RADWAŃSKA: You know – 90% of the season is on hard courts and so I am used to it.
You know, its strange because I am not practicing on hard courts – I
don't even have a hard court in my city and so I am practicing on other
surfaces ….. I play a really lot of hard court with the tournaments but
before I was really liking to play on clay but now with the tournaments I
am really liking to play on hard.
Q: Obviously you are having a great season so far – if it wasn't for
Vika –it would have been great. Can you talk a little bit about that
match and how its changed….
RADWAŃSKA: Yes, she is playing great and this year I have lost six matches and six
matches against her….
Yes, it would be nice to play another player but this is a draw and so this
is how it is. You know – I am jus happy that I can play good matches
and I will try the next time to play against Vika.
