Q. What did you think of his game and the atmosphere out there today?
It was really nice. I quite enjoyed it.
About the player, as I said on the court, I think we might see him here for another couple of years. It's a young guy. He's very hungry. He went through past the quallies, played another two solid match. I think it was a bit of luck of experience for him today.
But, you know, I think he's very talented player.
Q. How pleased are you with your own form? Not a set dropped yet. Are you happy with where your game is?
So, yeah, I think it was a good few things that I tried and proved for myself that everything is going well. I feel good on the court. That's important for my game.
Q. Do you think the roof should have been closed all day today because of the heat?
Q. You didn't think about it?
Q. The shirt you were wearing today, a fashion statement?
But, no, I think it's something different, something you cannot see on the others, which I really like. As I'm a face of a fashion brand, then I need to listen and go whatever they make.
You know, I think that's what it's all about, the people starts to talk about it, the people are interesting in it. Of course, you will get some negative feedback as well. You cannot make it perfect for everyone. It's the matter of the taste.
But in the end it creates some action. That's what I like.
Q. It's a little more adventurous, stronger statement than when you first started. Basically solid colors, nothing too exciting. This is a bit of a change.
I learned, especially with a huge brand like them, everything takes time. It's not going to happen in a week. So really you just need to be a bit patient. All started pretty well from, I would say, US Open.
And, yeah, I really like the way that they take it, really make it way more different than you can see with the other guys, which they look like all one team.
Q. It's going to stay blue and white stripes for the moment for here?
Q. What about for Wimbledon?
Q. Do you enjoy being the one guy from H & M instead of five like Nike guys in the top 10?
You know, they choose me to be the only one. Really it's a huge, huge national, worldwide brand. So, yeah, it feels very special to me.
Q. What did you think when you looked at the draw, your half of the draw?
Even if I see more, it's not important at all to me because really, I mean, especially here in the first week the opponents was not the only one who you need to fight with. It was the conditions: the heat, the wind, everything. I'm really happy that I kind of survive it, especially today.
I'm really looking forward for some cooler conditions.
Q. When you see Roger and Rafa and Andy and Tsonga are not playing the same day as you, you have an idea.
You know, it's always about the draw. Really, if I'm going to have it once pretty good, yes, I take it. Always the next few times it's going to be the opposite way or other way around, whatever it is.
Really, I just want to take it how it is, be prepared for every single match, no matter who is there, who is waiting for me.
Q. What have you been getting up to on your days off?
I don't think it would be smart, you know, to do anything else than this, if you want to do well, if you want to be ready. That was, yes, my plans and schedule through the days when I had it off.
Q. Any plans for when the weather gets a bit cooler?
