Lepchenko said after the match she had "mixed feelings." "I've got real mixed feelings right now. I'm sad but at the same time, I'm excited." She added, "I didn't show anyone any tennis today. I made it like a walk in the park." (via SI.com)
However, Lepchenko's French Open run could land her a spot on the U.S. Olympic team as the fourth-highest ranked U.S. Woman. Lepchenko said about the possibility, "I'm playing in the Olympics and not just for any country, it's the USA. As a kid, you grow up watching the Opening Ceremony and things like that. To be there experiencing that, it's got to be an amazing feeling."
