US Open 2000 after beating Pierce
Anke Huber: Well, I saw it already from the beginning. I mean, usually she serves a little better, yes, and a little harder, so I saw it. But it was very tough for me to play because I knew that if I am leading maybe a little bit she is going to retire and so I don't know if I just put the balls in, she hits the winners, so it was very tough for me to play. But I don't know what I am thinking right now. I am happy that I am in the quarterfinals, but I feel sorry for her. I saw her in the locker room. She didn't look very happy, so... And we are quite good friends, so it is not --
Q. Did she say anything afterwards?
Anke Huber: No, no. I think she wanted to be alone.
Q. Is it hard to prepare for the next rounds when you have only played for a little while like that?
Anke Huber: Well, I have a doubles today so I will play a little bit more and I saved some energy. It is not too bad. I think I play tomorrow again, so, I don't really mind about that.
Q. Do you know what your record is against any of those players, Dementieva and Osterloh?
Anke Huber: I think I lost to Dementieva once and Osterloh I never played.
Q. Could be a semifinal appearance?
Anke Huber: Could be. They played good. Osterloh and Dementieva had already a good year, you never know what is happening.
Q. You feel like it is a good opportunity for you?
Anke Huber: Sure, I mean, it is a great opportunity, but I better don't think about it. I just concentrate and play my game and not think about it if I have a good draw, that it is a good opportunity, otherwise, I am not putting a ball in.
