An interview with:
THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. Svetlana says you played with too much pressure. Do you agree with her? Is that the reason you couldn't find yourgame, especially your serve?
DINARA SAFINA: Well, pressure I put on myself because Ireally wanted to win. I just didn'thandle it.
Q. You were especially struggling with your serve?
DINARA SAFINA: As you can see.
Q. How did you feel on court? Youlooked desperately around like, where can I find my strokes, my rhythm?
DINARA SAFINA: Yeah, I didn't ‑‑ that's exactly. I was a little bit desperate on the court,and didn't do the things that I was ‑‑ I had to do. Didn't stay tough mentally.
Q. Is there any comfort to you that she played a very good match. It wasn't like she put you in a position towin but you didn't win. Does that makeit any easier for you, or...
DINARA SAFINA: No, because she gave me chances and I had chances. She was not so aggressive as she usually be. I just didn't do anything.
Q. You basically beat yourself?
DINARA SAFINA: I lost myself.
Why is it that when Dinara Safina gives her version of "She didn't beat me I beat myself" it's okay but when Serena Williams says the same thing it's proof of, oh I don't know, her arrogance and lack of class? I'm just sayin'.
