Q. Isn't she a player you wish you can avoid in the draw, for instance?
YANINA WICKMAYER: No, not really.
Q. Nothing which is disturbing you in her game?
YANINA WICKMAYER: No.
Congrats to Dani! She's quietly made it into the 4th Round, beating Wicky in straight sets. She'll play JJ next, which is kind of funny because apparently, Dani's packing on the muscle with the architect of JJ discontent, Pat Etcheberry:
Q. You played very well, and I'm very happy for you. How can you explain this moment of your career? You are coming back so good. What do you change in your something, I don't know, in technical things, in your mind, in your physical, in what?
DANIELA HANTUCHOVA: Thank you. I think it's because the motivation is a still so big for me. There are still so many goals that I haven't achieved, and I'm doing anything I can to be able to get them one day.
I'm working hard on and off the court, especially fitness wise. I've been working with Pat Etcheberry. It's been a great success for me being able to have him on the team.
I think that transforms to the tennis court as well. I'm more confident and I know I can last in the long points. Yeah, I feel like I'm doing the right things.
Q. It looks like with your arms that you put a lot of muscle on. Can you talk about some of the things that you've been doing?
DANIELA HANTUCHOVA: Yeah, we're doing a lot of strength work basically almost every day, even during the tournaments. It just gives me so much confidence, not only physically, but mentally too, that I know I'm working harder probably than anybody.
When it's important times in the points, in the matches, you remember those things you do outside the court. That definitely transfers to the court as well.
Q. So movement wise do you feel faster than you've been?
DANIELA HANTUCHOVA: Yeah, definitely. I think it comes hand in hand with being stronger. You automatically gonna feel also faster as well. I think that's what's helping me a lot, that in the points I don't rush anymore going for the winners like before, and being able to cut unforced errors because of that, because I know that I can lat in the points and I don't have to rush for the big shots.
