Jeremy Chardy

Monte Carlo, Monaco

J. CHARDY/B. Coric

7-6, 3-6, 6-3

THE MODERATOR: Questions in French.

Q. What about the first round?
JEREMY CHARDY: It was a very tough first round. He plays very well on clay. I feel very good on this clay. I was very frustrated because in the beginning I had many breakpoints, and I didn't make any. I had to wait until the third set to win a breakpoint.

I'm very happy I was able to win that match at the end.

Q. There was some nervousness there?
JEREMY CHARDY: I had more opportunities than he did. I was confident because I just won a title. When you do that, you want to continue winning. You don't want to stop. You don't want to lose.

I played my match. I believe if I had won those breakpoints, the score would have been different. Maybe we wouldn't have played a third set.

But the main thing is to win.

Q. Davis Cup helped you a lot?
JEREMY CHARDY: Davis Cup was very good for me mentally already. I feel better on the court. Every win I can get, the better.

I had tough moments when I was not feeling good on the court. Now that everything is good, I want to take advantage of it. I'm really enjoying my matches, especially when I win.

In Marrakesh, it was special conditions. It was tough. The courts the were not great. It's not the best play I've seen. But the tournament was nice. I played two good matches. I lost against Kohlschreiber. It was a strange match. When I started the match, I felt very tired. I had stiff muscles. I lost 6-Love in a very short time.

As soon as I was able to break him, suddenly he didn't fight back. He started taking many risks. In the third set, we played a good set. In the end, he was just a bit stronger than I was. But it still was a good match.

Now physically I feel a lot better. It changes a lot. I have absolutely no problems playing three sets. I know physically I'm not going to give up, so this takes away some pressure.

Q. What about your next round?
JEREMY CHARDY: I played him in Miami. I beat him there. I played a good match. This time will be different. He will want revenge. It's going to be a complicated match, I believe.

But I played well today. I'm going to focus on my game and try to find solutions to win once again.
