Jeremy Chardy

Monte Carlo, Monaco

M. CILIC/J. Chardy

6-3, 6-0

THE MODERATOR: Questions in French, please.

Q. You were not lucky because Cilic was very good today.
JEREMY CHARDY: Yes, he played a very good match. But I also didn't serve well. During the whole match, I was not able to serve. My back was hurting, especially when I was serving. When you don't serve well against a player like him, it becomes very difficult.

He's very solid from the baseline. There's nothing much more to say. I started having pain in my back last night after my match. During the whole match here, I couldn't serve. It was hurting too. I was serving slowly.

I missed many times. I was putting no effect into the ball. I was in a dangerous position for every service game that I had.

I had no rest since Miami, so I believe I'm tired also.

Q. What are you going to do now?
JEREMY CHARDY: I'm going to the academy to practice, then I'll go to Barcelona. I hope I'll be able to play there. After that, I will play Munich, Aix-en-Provence, Bordeaux and the French Open. I will play the French Open, too.

Q. A question about the French Open. Did you see, not play, but see a match on TV or in the stands that you liked, that you remember?
JEREMY CHARDY: I'm thinking about the Kuerten match in the final. I don't remember which year it was. It might be 1997. It was the first time I was watching the French Open final.

I had won the tickets because I won a tournament of the league. I was lucky to be able to watch that match. It is difficult to forget that.

Once I beat one of Cilic's former coaches. This is something also that I remember. You never forget your first Grand Slams. At that time I was mainly playing challengers. It was the first time I was playing such a good player in the French Open. I was down two sets to love, playing five sets. At this moment in my career, it was difficult to do better than that.

During the same week, I was round of 16 in the French Open. I became top 100. You don't forget that. It was a beautiful moment in my career. I will always remember it.
