I really want to win and put the memory of the last time behind me.
The hardest time for me was right after Roland Garros. I was wondering what was wrong with my game, why I was losing virtually every match I was playing.
It was difficult, as it always is when I play against another Russian. I missed several easy shots.
I talk to him every day and he is getting fitter and hopes to return in Rotterdam next week.
I think I played well today. I just missed some really important shots.
I really wanted to win here tonight. In the quarterfinals I should be playing against Kim, and that means something to me. I`ve never been able to win against her and it might happen this time. However, I`ve seen her at a training session and I pretty much believe she`s fit.
