Posted on September 1, 2010
Q. Score line is 6‑1, 6‑1. You're the No. 1 seed. What was your feeling coming in? Were you nervous? What was it like coming in tonight?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Well, it's a great feeling. Actually I didn't feel too nervous. I was just happy to be out there and get to play. We had waited for a long time.
It was nice to get out there and know that the crowd was still there to support us.
Q. And your game?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Well, I'm happy to be through to the second round. The first match is always tough. You never know what to expect. A new tournament.
I'm just happy to be through.
Q. What is it like to get to wait till 11:50 to get on the court?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Well, definitely it's a long night. The matches before on the center court were so long. I don't think there was even one match two sets. So no one expected that.
But, you know, it was nice. A win is a win, so it doesn't really matter what time I get on. As long as I win, I'm happy.
Q. What did you do before? Have to warm up, cool down?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: I warmed up and then I just went to the locker room, got ready, relaxed a little bit, watched Rafa's match. Yeah, then I got ready again and I went to the gym and ran a little bit.
Q. Did you watch his whole match?
CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: I didn't really watch it too much. I just watched a little bit. Then I read a magazine. I saw a little bit more. Just to keep my focus both on and off the court.
