Q. Just how tough were the conditions out there today?
Q. How important is it in conditions like that to monitor what your opponent is doing and how his body language is? How did you find his body language in the fifth set?
Yeah, I think throughout the fourth set I felt like he was struggling a little bit. He wasn't reacting quite as well. Then in the start of the fifth set he came out sort of with all guns blazing.
Played a great game to break me the first game of the fifth. He sort of went for it. He could have easily made four errors and gave me that first game, so...
Q. You must be happy with your fitness to be able to sustain it for 4 hours and 18 minutes?
But, yeah, there was only one or two points in it in the end.
Q. Where does this rank in terms of your tough losses?
Q. What turned it around in that third set after being two sets down?
He served pretty well for the most part, for a guy that doesn't have the biggest serve out there. He hits his spots pretty well. But, you know, I was able to just sort of hang in there in the third set and somehow able to turn it around.
I was down an early break in the third, fourth, and fifth set.
Q. You're out there on the court, the match is on your racquet, but the fanatics are up in the stands chanting. Do you hear them? Does that boost you?
Q. Do you actually hear their chants?
Q. You're down to play doubles on Hisense tomorrow.
Q. Still going ahead with it?
Q. Have you talked to Pat about it?
Q. At this stage you'll play?
Q. If you and Patrick teamed up with the other players and the legends that they're associated with, like Murray and Lendl, Roger and Edberg, Djokovic and Becker, how do you think that would come out?
Q. Tonight you equaled the record for the most five set matches in the Open era. Equaled Andre Agassi with 41. Must get sick of putting your body through constant grueling, five set matches.
You know, ended up one point from coming back from two sets.
