Q. You must be disappointed, but you must have learned a lot from watching Serena out there, as well.
I mean, it was an absolute pleasure to be out there and have the chance to play against her.
Q. Did you get any messages from people who watched?
Q. What struck you about playing her the most? Was it the power?
I mean, you really have to respect what she's done in her career. She's such a nice girl, as well, which makes it even better. I mean, it was just awesome to have the opportunity to play against her tonight.
I learned a few things. It's going to be a really good experience for me moving forward.
Q. Was it intimidating?
But, no, it was a good experience. Yeah, I'm looking forward to watching the tape again and seeing what really happened.
Q. Serves were coming through 190K. How did you prepare for that? Was that the most concerning part of playing Serena?
I have a great hitting partner here in Melbourne, Daniel Burns. He does such a fantastic job with me. He was more than happy to help over the last couple of days in preparing.
I mean, Serena's got one of the greatest serves on tour. I think that goes a long way to why she's No. 1 in the world and a great champion.
Q. You mixed your shots up. Was that the game plan?
I think there's definitely areas that need improvement in my game. I think that, I mean, Serena is someone we can all look up to, to what she's done in her career.
Yeah, it was a really good match. A really positive match for me.
Q. Could you see yourself on Arthur Ashe Stadium at the US Open?
Hopefully one day I'll be playing out there when I'm not playing the first seed in the first round. But, yeah, I mean, it was unbelievable to be out there tonight.
Q. What is your earliest memory of Serena?
Q. You were playing, just not watching?
Q. Serena said she finds you appealing, she would like to see you do well. Did she say anything to you?
After the match she said it was a great match, and I really can't wait to look back on it and watch the tape over and try to really learn a few things.
