I am very excited that I played really well today. In third set I played my best tennis. So was a tough match, but I really want to enjoy and to try my best next round because it will be very tough.

Q. You won a lot of matches last year and sis tournaments. Does it feel like a different challenge winning matches at a Grand Slam?

Q. Given all the matches you have won last year, do you feel you already belong in the top 10, even though now is the time you're getting into the top 10?

Is not easy, but I want to improve more for my game and to be close there.
Q. Can you just talk about what were a couple key things, most important things, from July when you won your first tournament, to now, to make you a top 10 player.
After that I felt I can play very good level in tennis. After Rome, after I beat Radwanska, before that I was thinking that is impossible to beat her because her game is very different, it's strange for me. It's not easy to play.
And after that I had confidence that I can beat the top players and to be there in the top level.
Q. Can you tell us a little bit what's happening in Romania behind you. Do your wins make headlines in the newspaper, or TV, and radio talking about you?
I just want to be focused every moment in tennis, because tennis doesn't wait for you. You have to be focused and to fight for every opportunity you have.
So I want to thank them because they were supporting me a lot. And now I heard that they are supporting me, as well.
Q. Jelena ran out of challenges in the final game of the first set.
Q. She tends to do that a lot. When you're on court with her, do you think it's weird how often she is wrong about challenges?
But I think she was very, you know, I think nervous first game to ask for two challenges already in first game. But that was, you know, my chance to get the match.
Q. It gives you confidence when she makes these terrible challenges?
