How do you feel as a world champion?
"Oh my God! It is incredible! Now it's great, but in the beginning it was very difficult. I do not like left-handed opponents; with the Belarusian girl I had a hard time. But the most difficult was the semi-final against the Brazilian girl. But finally I managed to defeat her as well! In the first half of the final I was the best. Now I am very, very happy! "
