Stressed by the subject chosen by the journalist, she gave no answer. About his loss to Elina Svitolina in the second round, Venus added: "It was a great match.
It was well played and it was great to have the crowd behind me. It was just a really magical atmosphere. I did a lot of good things today.
Many good things to build on. I missed Asia in recent years, so I'd love to play a few more games. There were a lot of positives for me today.
I served well and played well. She played well. There are many things to build for me and from there. I was excited to play my next games and I'm sad to see that it ends so early. "
What makes Svitolina a difficult opponent? "She always plays extremely well against me. You know, she can keep this form and she has a lot of great things in front of her. I think there are probably a lot of 'win' matches for her and she could not win.
But against me, she plays extremely well. You know, she continues in this direction, so she is clearly extremely talented. She can just keep going higher. "
