Quick Quotes

Q. You came up short but had an outstanding week. How would you evaluate your week here and the progress you made?

VALERY PLATA: I think it was really good. Actually it was great. I had a lot of fun. Kind of played good the whole way through and was very consistent, so I'm really happy about it.

Q. What does making this semifinal round here in the Women's Am do for your confidence the next few tournaments you're playing and hopefully the college season this fall?

Q. What would you say were a few of your favorite shots that you hit or your favorite moments from the week?

Q. I saw that, yeah, that was a big chip to tie the match.
