KIM CLIJSTERS: Last time. (Clapping.)
Q. You look happy about that.
KIM CLIJSTERS: Yeah, no.
Q. Are we that bad?
KIM CLIJSTERS: No. It’s okay.
Q. What are your emotions, Kim?
KIM CLIJSTERS: Now? I think the first hour after the match there was still disappointment and a little bit of frustration, I think. You know, still kind of had that routine of going through the match and trying to figure out how to do it better next time.
But obviously now, I mean, after talking and kind of thinking about, you know, the retirement in singles, I’m happy. You know, I’m happy that in the last year and a half or even two years, it’s been kind of up and down, and I’m happy that I stuck through it and I was able to kind of live a lot of these emotions that I’ve had in these 18 months or so.
Kind of in a way proud of myself that I was able to do that. So, yeah, I feel happy. ...
