About his contest

“It went very quickly in the first set. He was very good at playing, he struck the perfect on and with every small possibility he went there full of for. With success. I also found that I’m good-sized, with a fairly high percentage of first-time loadings, but I made a few mistakes. I have, therefore, proposed to more intensity in my legs to convert to firmer and to ensure that he is in the rallies minden good went feel. I succeeded and so I have the contest to be able to turn and to my hand.”

About his level of play

“I don’t know if I got all close to my best level of tennis. The question I ask myself. I just try my best to do. It was not easy, because he is little rhythm and few rallies were. In addition, there were moments, with the rain, where we barely to play tennis came. We played two points and we had to stop. He hit an ace and there was again a delay. I’m not surprised about my level, because I feel good on training, but it does have virtue. I am very happy about those first two races.”

About storage

“I am very pleased with the way I served. It was also the first time since long time I during four consecutive sets I should do. And my storage has lead me to the end of the match, well helped. Even in the first set, I found that I was well served. I have small adjustments to try to carry out during the preparation. They are very technical matters. It’s about the opgooi and also to hit the ball with my elbow, the better to be able to attack. And so far it runs well.”

About the Rus Medvedev, his next opponent

“I have never been against him played, and also very rarely with trained. He has the last six months a lot of progress has been made, incredibly a lot of matches won. He has flat strokes and also serves well. He is very gifted. Even if he is far away from the ball, he can still be very posh touch. He is very large, so it will be the intention of him as much as possible to make it move. I feel in any case very well, and will thus, the maximum do to make his life as sour as possible.”
