Q: Second day in a row that the doubles championship goes to the super tiebreaker. Can you just talk about the tension and coming back to win?
I think it's third time. I think we played most of the matches on tiebreaker. You know, we lost last week also in tiebreaker. We won first tiebreaker, second one we lost, and we have a little bit of experience. But, yeah, the tension is huge, and it's little bit of lottery. I think we're very lucky in this tournament, and we played good.
Q: Would you have rather played out a third set?
Q: You're happy with the way it is?
Q: Does it help to play the doubles for singles players?
You know for sure you're not going spend two hours or two and a half hours on the court. When you're out of singles, then it's strange.
Q: What is the motivation? What keeps you going to get to today?
Well, we don't want to lose. (Laughter.)
Q: Looking forward to win the French, Wimbledon, US Open?
Yeah, all of them.
Q: I was talking in singles.
Both. And mixed also.
Q: Are you going to play the big ones this year?
We don't know yet really.
Q: So you have to lose in singles early?
Q: You may play three sets and tiebreaker and could be easier.
That's good. Three tiebreaks and we're done.
Q: Does it take away some of the pain of losing in the singles when you can walk away with a doubles title?
Actually, feel very hard to stay after losing. It's the worst.
Q: You're a little looser maybe than another teams only focusing on doubles?
Amélie: Yeah, we try to improve whatever, serve, return, whatever we need to work on for singles.
