"Right after, the day after, I really didn't want to think about it because it wasn't necessarily the happiest memory for me," she said. "I just sort of wanted to move on at that point."Of course I'm happy that I won a Grand Slam, I don't think there's anything that can take away from that, but I feel like it was so strange, I didn't just want to think about it."I wanted to just push it to the side."
