THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. Filippo, Jannik played well to give you a chance to get through and give you a shot at the semis. What are the emotions?
FILIPPO VOLANDRI: The biggest emotion I have now is proud. I'm really proud of my players. They gave all they had today. That's why I'm really proud. Obviously we step on court to try to win this match.
This week has been a fantastic week, but we had to manage with a lot of emergencies. We lost our doctor today, which was not easy to manage. But still we did our best. That's why there's no regrets.
Q. Jannik, how do you feel about your week?
JANNIK SINNER: Well, for me of course --
FABIO FOGNINI: No voice anymore (smiling).
JANNIK SINNER: Of course, it's a little bit different than normal tournament. Obviously very happy to be part of this team. Everyone gave 100%. Today we were a little bit unfortunate at one point. What happened this night, it's much more important than a simple competition. We tried our best.
We knew our doctor well. He always was courageous and tried to give us strength somehow to stay in tough moments. We tried our best today.
I think talking about my side, I grow much in this competition. Obviously looking forward to playing many of them.
Q. Would you like to add any further tributes to the team doctor?
FABIO FOGNINI: Sorry?
Q. Any further tributes for your team doctor.
FABIO FOGNINI: I mean, nothing. First of all, he just say everything. Probably me, the captain, Bolelli, he was know him very, very well. When I was young...
It's tough moment. Yeah, I have always great memory with him. I'm really sad today.
