Zheng Jie in Wikipedia
It will be exciting to play in the first final between Chinese.
My opponent did a good job in both speed and power, and played down my performance. And my shots lacked spin, and offered no threat.
This is the first time for a Chinese player to reach the quarter-finals in a big tournament. It's no big surprise. Just a quarter. If you win the tournament it's a big surprise.
I try to play more quickly, more flat, because I'm not as tall as the other players. So that's why I try to do this playing style. My baseline game is okay, but my serve is not good enough, I need to improve it.
We felt good in the first set but I think in the second set we were a little lucky.
I'm happy to be here. We have more work to do.
I think that we are outsiders, for sure, but we didn't come here to lose. We believe in ourselves.
Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
