COLLINS: I'm sorry I grabbed you away from kissing that ball girl, but we had 30 seconds before we were off the air.
QUESTION: With the way you've been feeling the past couple of days, how were you able to get out there today and play the way you did?
QUESTION: Monica, you obviously are disappointed, but you have to be pleased that you played her so well, so much better than before. What do you think the difference was?
QUESTION: Is that first five games about as well as you have played in quite a while?
QUESTION: You seemed to run out of gas or be out of gas at one time and then you somehow found 0003 resolve. Did you feel that you were just getting so fatigued, you were unable to run for shots?
QUESTION: Monica, your second tournament of the year. You take the No. 1 player in the world to the edge of losing. That must be encouraging for you. SELES: Definitely I had my chances in this match. She played really well when it counted, and she's just playing some great tennis right now.
QUESTION: Losing as badly as you did last week, what sort of motivation was that for this week?
QUESTION: You're down 2-5 in the third. What are you thinking?
QUESTION: Well, it didn't look like it. It looked like you really dug down deep, showed great character and fought back in there.
QUESTION: I know you said that you're still a long way from where you want to be for the Grand Slams, but based on the way you did play today, do you take something positive out of here into the rest of the year?
QUESTION: The way you're feeling now when you have a chance to recuperate, will you have any chance of getting better?
QUESTION: Did you practice at all this morning? You didn't yesterday.
QUESTION: Monica, you've played her now twice in the last couple of weeks. Where is her game in relation to say Steffi hasn't been around? Is she a good match for Steffi at this point?
QUESTION: Do you think of Martina as being the No. 1 player or do you still think of Steffi as being No. 1?
QUESTION: Do you still think of her as the better player?
QUESTION: The crowd saw a great match today. Do you think they got their money's worth?
QUESTION: How did it feel for them being behind you, pulling you through there in the third set? How did you feel about that?
QUESTION: Are you going to be able to play for the coming week?
QUESTION: You get to two points away at five all in your tiebreaker. Did you feel you were going to win it then?
QUESTION: Did you have a particular plan that you wanted to try against Martina?
QUESTION: She made a bunch of unforced errors there in the last couple of games. Did you think maybe she was losing her concentration and you might have her?
