After their win against Russia, Scotland Skip, Eve Muirhead
"We played great out there and our goal for the first game was to play strong. At other tournaments this year we started off slow and got better and better, so we wanted to come out and play well from the start, and I think we did that. Probably two or three slack shots cost us. But the Russian played great – as soon as we mad e those little mistakes the Russians capitalised on them.
Giving up a three is not ideal, but we came and scored one. It feels great to beat a good team, and we know they’re a good team.
"The ninth was just one of those ends – we were 100% apart from one stone. We were lucky we were three up going into that end.
"There’s still lots to work on, we can get better and better. I know it was a solid performance but I know we can get better, and if we want to be in the mix at the end of the week, we need to get better."
