But then I won one game and suddenly I started to feel much better and I came back to win the first set. I sensed she was a little bit down at the start of the second and I made a really fast start. I then started to make a few mistakes that perhaps I shouldn't have and made it a little bit complicated. I'm happy that I got through in the end." WTA story
