Adrian Mannarino

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Press Conference

A. MANNARINO/A. Karatsev

7-6, 6-7, 7-5, 6-4

THE MODERATOR: You were spectacular out there tonight. How did you feel during the game and how do you feel now?

ADRIAN MANNARINO: Well, of course I'm kind of exhausted right now. It's been long. It's like 3 a.m.

That was a good battle on court, lots of rallies. He was hitting hard. Yeah, I think that was a good match, good fight, and happy I got through. Even if I'm tired now, I don't really think about it. I'm just happy that I won.

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. I know you just finished a tough match, but looking ahead, what are your thoughts about the opportunity ahead of you, your next opponent?

ADRIAN MANNARINO: I don't know who I'm going to play against next. I don't like to watch and I don't want to know. It's 3 a.m. Just finished my match. I don't really care about who I'm playing next. Is the last thing I'm going to think about. I just want to enjoy the moment right now. We got time to see for the next one.

Q. Obviously you played quite well tonight and in the previous rounds. What do you think is working so well for you this week that's troubling so many guys?

ADRIAN MANNARINO: Well, I just won three match. I don't think you can say I'm bothering so many guys.

The matchup was pretty good tonight. I think that Aslan is the kind of player who makes me play well. So was Hurkacz in the second round.

I think I'm moving pretty well on court. I'm just trying to be consistent. I'm keeping a good attitude on court and just trying to fight the most I can, not thinking about what's going to happen or what's happening on the court at the moment. I'm just focusing on the next point, point after point. It's working out.

I've been complaining a little bit during my first match. I think really it didn't help me. Luckily I got through. Yeah, I'm just working on my behaving on court, trying to focus, trying to just play every point.

With my type of game, this is what I can do. I'm not going to serve, like, 220 kilometers or making lots of winners. I'm just the kind of player who is grinding and put one more time the ball in the court. This is what I'm doing.
