Interview with Maria Kirilenko






Q1. Can you summarize today's match?

I can say that I didn't play extremely well. It's always the difficult in the first match and it has only been two weeks since the US open. It always takes time to feel the ball and court. As long as I am winning, I am still happy.





Q2. Last year in this tournament, you had to withdraw from the tournament due to the pain in your lower back. DId you come back here to see your fans?

I came here a little bit early and had an opportunity to meet the fans. I am happy to come back here where I have a lot of fans. I am really happy to see them and to play in front of them.





Q3. You used medical treatment after the first set, is your knee injury serious?

My knee is still fine. Injury happens sometimes, initially there was a big pain, however I went through with it and it eventually subsided.





Q4. Did you enjoy participating in the Adidas friends event match?

I had fun and enjoyed the people watching me. It was also a holiday for everyone and they had the opportunity to enjoy this fun event. The singers from Korea were there also to, so the public would have enjoyed it as well.





Q5. You were the model for Stella Mccartney's line for Adidas. Will you continue to work with her?

I will still represent Stella Mccartney and I continue to work with her.





Q6. Did you assist Stella Mccartney when she was designing the line?

AN INTERVIEW WITH KIRI !!!

It's completely her design. Before, when I worked with her she always asked me what colour I liked, and I told her I liked bright colours and maybe she remembered that and considered it when designing the products.





Q7. You taught kids very well on Sunday's one point lesson. Do you think you have talent in teaching?

It wasn't the first time teaching for me, I think I am a good coach. I understand tennis now and I am able to explain specifically to the kids to help them improve their skills.

GREAT PERFORMANCE by SAMOERAI DATE; the 42-old Japanese slashed Kiri without pity in pieces:)

Date-Krumm, who had rallied from a set and a break down to beat Heather Watson in the first round, was sharp from start to finish this time against Kirilenko, winning six games in a row at one point - taking her from 4-3 in the first set to 63 40 - and eventually cruising through in straight sets, 63 61.

"Maria is a very strong player, but I felt she had some kind of problem today," Date-Krumm said. "She didn't run everywhere like she usually does, so I think she had something wrong with her. She wasn't putting as much pressure on me today, so I just had to control myself and my game until the end."

Date-Krumm won the press room over after she was asked about her secrets to match recovery.

"I drink a lot, eat a lot, and eat a lot of Korean food!" the Japanese veteran said.

Date-Krumm's win over the No.19-ranked Kirilenko was her 10th win over a Top 20 player since coming back to the tour in 2008 - she had eight Top 20 wins during a re-breakthrough 2010 season (Virginie Razzano, Nadia Petrova, Dinara Safina, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Maria Sharapova, Sam Stosur, Shahar Peer and Li Na) and got her ninth earlier this year (another one against Petrova).

The No.1 seed fared much better than the No.2 seed, as Agnieszka Radwanska defeated Estrella Cabeza Candela in just 62 minutes, 62 61. Radwanska reeled off the last 12 points of the match.

"I had never played her before, and she started very well - the first few games were long and tight," Radwanska said. "But after a few games I knew what I had to do to win the match, and I started to play more aggressive from there. I started the second set very well and that helped me in the end."

The other match of the day saw South Korean wildcard Jang Su Jeong follow her first round upset of No.4 seed Klara Zakopalova with a come-from-behind 16 64 61 win over Tunisian qualifier Ons Jabeur.

"I was very nervous in the first set, but in the middle of the second set my coach came and helped me, encouraged me, and I changed my mentality," Jang said. "My goal for this tournament was just to get one win, but now I have two, so I'm very happy. I have to thank the crowd for all their support."

Jang is the first Korean in a WTA quarterfinal since Cho Yoon Jeong was a finalist at Canberra in 2006.

Radwanska, Date-Krumm and Jang will all play their quarterfinal matches on Friday. The other five players in the quarterfinals all won their second round matches on Wednesday
