Player quotes

Kim Clijsters
"I was nervous and excited to be out there again. I had to find my way to get there (court two) a little bit - luckily a security guard knew where he was going because I actually had no idea,"
"I can play better but overall I think I played a good match,"
"What's really important on grass is that you stay on top of your baseline. If I can do that then I'll know that I'm playing some of my best tennis."
"I had a couple of matches last week when I was really happy with the way that I played, and it really helped me to find the game I was looking for on grass. I know what it is, it's just a matter of doing it every rally and every shot."
