Q. What do you think was so challenging about that second set compared to the first?
But just very happy that I could manage to win that second set and finish the match.
Q. How about your right shoulder? Usually you don't tape things in the beginning of the season. This season there is some taping on your right shoulder.
After it was a little bit worse, but actually it's pretty good now. Not going to complain about that.
Q. The weather obviously is a huge topic here. You played indoors today. Do you have a take on how hot it is before it becomes impossible to play?
Today was really, really hard. Even indoor was ridiculous. Well, of course, everybody talk about it. So we kind of trying to prepare for that weather and doing everything we can to survive those matches, but it's tough.
Q. Given that, can you get lucky in the draw to play indoors, find yourself in the second week, and the bad conditions haven't hit you in a way?
Sometimes you lucky, sometimes you not. Well, you just have to fight with yourself and then with your opponent. The weather push you to do it.
Q. What has the conversation been in the locker room? What's the mood right now with respect to the heat?
I think, you know, the ice bath, it's the thing everybody does this week every day.
So, uhm, well, it's definitely tough for everyone.
Q. Must be good to hear it's supposed to be cooler this weekend and next.
I think on Saturday it will be normal, so that's good.
Q. Physically how are you doing with the shoulder strapping and everything? Is it the same shoulder that ends up bothering you towards the end of the year every year?
