“It was a tough one,” she admitted. “I think she played a good match. I didn't feel myself in the whole match. I'm a little bit sad about that, because I think I played maybe the worst match of the tournament and of the clay season, but sometimes it's like that.
“I think I was very nervous. I couldn't control the nerves during the entire match. But at least I fight until the last moment and I had my chances. But, well, credit to her.”
The Spaniard said she would try to learn from the occasion.
“I was nervous in the morning, I was nervous yesterday night,” she said. “It's complicated the first time when you're in a quarter-final.
“When you want it so, so much, maybe sometimes it's a little bit too much, and I was putting a little bit too much pressure on myself. I think that's a little bit the next time, if I have another opportunity like this, I will try to change. Of course the nerves are always there, but I think today was a little bit too much.”
