Federation Cup (Nova Yardinia): loss to Francesca Schiavone (ITA) on Day 1

25th April, 2009

Q: Svetlana, bad luck. That's one you would rather forget?

Svetlana: Yeah, definitely. I was not playing my best tennis in second and third set. I lost my game after the first and it was mainly that today.

Q: What changed after the first set?

Svetlana: Well, I just confused and a little bit feel because I just played few days after hard (courts) and I tried to play the tennis hard and not possible. And I got into her game and instead of my game and it wasn't the best.

Q: Anna (Chakvetadze) came in and said conditions were very slow. Did you find that as well?

Svetlana: It was very confusing because first set it was slow then the court I felt faster then in the third it was slower so it was three different conditions. And yeah it was tough but it's the same for everybody.

Q: And the fightback begins tomorrow morning, yeah?

Svetlana: Yeah, definitely we can lose, you know. It's very disappointing to be 2-0 down. It's the first in my career feel this way, but you know we still in with a chance.
