David Goffin

Wimbledon, London, England

D. GOFFIN/D. Medvedev

4-6, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. That must feel incredible to come through that one from 4-1 down, both playing at such a high level. What were the feelings there?
DAVID GOFFIN: Yeah, it was an amazing feeling. But I felt that I was a little bit, I think, the better player during the whole match. If you see all the rallies and how I felt during the match, I was feeling good and during the rallies I was a little bit more aggressive.

But you never know with a player like Daniil, who sometimes is aggressive in just a few points, and then he serves, and then few aces, could be 4-1 like in the fifth.

But I felt like I had the game and the shots to come back. Physically I was feeling great, as well.

So I had the energy to fight, to come back, and I think that that was the key to come back in the fifth with a really good game, to come back at 4-3, a good service, a game to hold.

And at the end it was tough to finish, but such a nice battle, and I'm really proud of the way I fought today.

Q. What did Thomas have to say to you afterwards?
DAVID GOFFIN: He was really happy, and of course it was a good match. The game plan was really good. I tried to use the slice a little bit more against Daniil, and it was an important shot to be easier in the rallies, and it was effective the whole match.

No, I was happy, and he was really happy.

Q. And lastly, you've got Verdasco next. How are you looking at that match?
DAVID GOFFIN: Yeah, it will be a tough one. It's the fourth round, so we will be both really excited and really focused on what we have to do, but it's completely different match, different opponent, a lefty. He can play really well on the grass. I remember he played once the quarterfinals.

So he's really tricky. We had a lot of nice matches against each other. But it's the first on grass, I think.

But the good thing is I will have two more days to recover, and then be ready for Monday.
