Q. Weren’t you afraid that the emotional side of things would have too
much influence on that match?

JUSTINE HENIN: No, I didn’t panic. I knew I was not starting that match
well. I can tell you, I had a horrible night. My herpes came out again,
and I said to my doctor, “Well, I see everything is fine, it’s great.”

So, really, I was a bit anxious. But also, I really wanted to do well. And
very early in the match, the match turned over. And then I knew I was
going to be able to keep it up until the end.

We cannot discount the possibility, of course, that Henin is a conceptual humorist merely paying homage to an old Vitas Gerulaitis press conference.
