Gilles Simon


6‑3, 7‑5, 6‑2

THE MODERATOR:テつ Questions, please.

Q.テつ What can you take from that to carry forward to the Davis Cup, as it's on grass?
GILLES SIMON:テつ Well, I was in a great shape in the five‑sets match.テつ I was playing a good tennis also.
I played also in Queen's.テつ The grass is a bit different, so I think I have everything I need to be ready for it.

Q.テつ Is this like the longest grass court season you had?
GILLES SIMON: テつYes, of course.テつ We had one week more.テつ I used the first week to practice.テつ I was in Stuttgart already.
Yeah, it starts to be long.テつ But I have been successful.テつ So I had worst trip than this one.

Q.テつ Had you hoped for more presumably from today's match?
GILLES SIMON:テつ Well, I have less occasion today than in Shanghai.テつ I think Roger played a great match, especially on the serve.テつ I had a lot of pressure because of that.テつ From the first point in the match, he served perfect.テつ He never gave me any occasion.
The only break I did was really good.テつ I just played a perfect game to break him.テつ But I really felt it would be hard to break him.
Well, on my serve he was returning.テつ We were playing a lot of points on baseline.テつ So the general feeling is it was a matter of time before I will lose my serve.テつ It was hard to have a grip on him.
That's why I feel it was a bit tight today.テつ He was a bit too relaxed.

Q.テつ This has been by far your best grass court season.テつ What were your thoughts on the surface before you started this year?
GILLES SIMON:テつ Well, I always felt good on grass.テつ Game‑wise I had no problems with the courts.テつ It was just out of physically.テつ I have a lot of trouble with my knees.テつ You know that the grass courts are not very healthy for the knees.
So I made a different schedule than the last years.テつ That's why I was in Stuttgart to prepare the grass court season.テつ I did some mistake in the past, and I just tried to improve.
Now that I'm 100% physically, I'm playing better.
