  3. Ash Barty:

    I wasn't able to adapt quickly enough, or well enough, to play a match of the standard that I expect myself to play and I want myself to play, and Sofia served today in the big moments. She served particularly well and got a lot of free points.

  4. French Open:

    I have no idea how I was able to get out of that first set and probably should have been bageled in the second and done pretty quickly in the third, as well, so I think, all in all, I was able to find a way to hang in there and make it tricky, but the polish wasn't there and Sofia was the better player in big moments today.

I've made shorts, commercials, music videos and features with Marya Cohen, Mira Nair, Rebecca Zlotowski, Anna Rose Holmer, Sofia Coppola, Shirin Neshat, and Natalie Portman. Unfortunately, the unmade films I have tried to make are a ghost history.
