Expert Answer:

Portia was not interested in any suitor aside from Bassanio. However, she wishes to be honest and ironicatthe same time. Portia does not really mean that Morocco had a good chance of winning her love, because in Act I, Scene 2 she holds her former suitors in contempt. She thinks the same of Morocco because he is boastful. Portia treats him with perfect courtesy and tact and speaks as if she holds him in high esteem.
