SHANGHAI ROLEX MASTERS


October 6, 2014


Ivo Karlovic


SHANGHAI, CHINA

I. KARLOVIC/M. Cilic
7‑5, 2‑6, 7‑6


THE MODERATOR:テつ Questions, please.

Q.テつ Very good win for you today.テつ But your celebration was a little bit muted, maybe not as big after beating a compatriot.テつ Was that on your mind?
IVO KARLOVIC:テつ Yes, because I know him really well.テつ I know him since he was little boy.
I mean, I didn't want to go like wild in celebration because that would not be nice, you know.テつ It is always difficult when you play somebody that you know really well.
I was lucky that I won in the end.

Q.テつ What do you think was the secret today?テつ Looked like not only are you a great server, but it looked like you were returning well today.
IVO KARLOVIC:テつ Yeah, definitely.テつ Always if I'm able to return good, then I have a lot more chances to win.
But I was playing really good my backhand slice.テつ It was playing really low.テつ Then I was able to run around my forehands with that.テつ Yeah, I was happy with the way I played and, of course, with the outcome.

Q.テつ John Isner was in here before.テつ He fired 21 aces today.テつ You had a high number yourself.テつ How are you finding the courts?テつ Is it playing the way you'd like it to play?
IVO KARLOVIC:テつ Yeah, I like them obviously because I won.テつ So I like them.テつ But they're pretty fast.テつ Maybe this stadium is not as quick as other courts, but I liked it also.
