Ask Ana #57 Jul 16th 2007

Luke: Hi Ana, do you think you will be able to win the US Open? I think you can the way you played in Wimbledon and the French.
Ana: I definitely believe I can win a Grand Slam. I have believed it for some time, and now I have come close. One of the improvements I made mentally in recent tournaments is to really take it match by match and not think too far ahead. So I am not going to think about winning the US Open, or any other tournament. I will just try to relax and take it match by match!
