Q. How did the match go, from your perspective?

Yeah, that was really important game that I lost. You know, it's cause many, many things. But, yeah, he played a good level. He's playing good tennis again. Well, I had some chance in third set, but couldn't keep up my level.

Yeah, really disappointed for my game. But he played good tennis.
