“My game plan was to take her down. I did it in the first round, but in the second round and third round I couldn’t take her down. I made a lot of mistakes, but I won, so I’m very happy. But on Monday, I know my coach will be very angry at me … because I didn’t take her down (more). This is the biggest mistake.”
