    Hi Xandra (new one, I guess :D)

    Nice interview. You were very confortable at the interview and I guess we all enjoyed it, even your oponnent.

    Congrats and I hope you come back playing the same chess that made you the chess Queen in 2008.

    Regarding chess videos, I think you are one of the pioneers in this area an I owe you much, since I love to see videos like these. Hope other tournament organizers catch this idea as well and please us ( audience) with this kind of interview mor often.

    Congratulations again and come to visit Brazil someday.
