Describe your feelings returning to Evian.
It is always very special to play in Evian, it's a fantastic tournament and I'm very proud to be part of the field this year. I'm playing well and hope to have a nice week.
Why is the Evian Masters special?
The place is special, the course is beautiful and always in fantastic shape and the atmosphere during the whole week is great: When you play in Evian you have the feeling that everybody is working very hard to make this tournament very special, and so it is.
How important is the Evian Masters to the European Tour players?
Evian is very important for the European Tour players, of course because of the prize money, but not only for that reason. I think that it's very nice to have the opportunity to play with a different and strong field of players coming from all over the world.
How does the event rate on the overall LET schedule?
The best event together with the British Open.
Who of your friends, family and team are you bringing to Evian?
A big part of my family is coming: my husband Fabio, my daughter Elena, my parents as well as my husband's parents and my brother Giovanni. My coach Roger Damiano is coming as well.
What are you most looking forward to about the event?
I'm very much looking forward to play the course, as I love it, and to have a nice week and enjoy the nice atmosphere of the tournament as well as the nice side events organised.
How will you be preparing?
I will be practicing hard in Cannes.
What are you working on in particular?
I'm working out hard to keep my physical condition, and practicing hard to keep my swing and my good feelings of the last months.
How do you assess your season so far?
I'm very glad about my achievements so far, as they are coming after a hard work I've been doing at the gym and on the golf course, with my coach Roger Damiano. I've been doing a great job also with my mental coach Vicki Aitken. The Ladies German Open was probably my best week of golf ever, and I was very proud having a bogey-free tournament.
What are your hopes and expectations for the tournament?
Of course I will try my best for the tournament, and I hope to get more points looking forward to The 2011 Solheim Cup.
