Nastya, congratulations on the win today. How was the first round for you? It seemed like a rough start, especially the first game.
AP: Yes, at the beginning of the game I was very nervous, but after some time I started playing more freely and the score started coming my way.
Your impression of the first game on the center court of WTA Moscow River Cup presented by Ingrad? How do you like the organisation?
AP: Only positive impression from the first game, it was easy for me. I have plans for the tournament, but now I only concentrate on showing my best tennis. It's a great opportunity to play at home, it always helps.
How did your priorities change over time as you are getting used to professional women's tennis tour?
AP: It's hard to say, but judging by my results I do my best on clay. If focusing on my game, tactics and style, hard suits me the best.
