What the winner said
Paying credit to Svitolina: "She's such a tough opponent, moving well and what she's doing after giving birth is impressive, big respect to her. It was such a tough match, super happy with the win."
Talking tactics: "I think for me, it's better to focus on myself, my game. If I feel like I have to go for my shots, then I'll go for it, no matter the score. Of course we prepare tactics, but during the match it depends on the score, depends on the game, if I need to change it a little bit."
Comparing form of Melbourne to now: "On the court I feel really good, with every match I feel like I'm getting better and better. I'm just focusing on myself and trying to bring my best tennis to the court.
Semi-final against Muchova: "Yeah I've seen her matches, she's playing really great tennis and winning against a lot of tough opponents, fighting for every point, moving very well, playing great clay court tennis. So it's going to be a great battle and I'm really looking forward to it."
