"It was an interesting match," she said in her press conference. "I was controlling it. I had more errors than I like and lower first serve percentage than I would like. For me, I'm looking at it from a standpoint of how can I get better.

"I have to play well against the No. 1 in the world. She's on top of her game and she played well, so I had to find a way to play a little better."
