"I made really good serves in the match with Keys. I also showed great footwork. I'm really satisfied with how stable the victory was. I tried to stay in focus. I'd say that in this tournament, my performance is good enough, but I don't really pay much time to evaluate the level of my game. I've got another big fight with Johanna Konta up ahead. We've always had tough matches, and I'll try to show my best", the Ukrainian said.
