Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
G. MONFILS/F. Coria
6-1, 6-1, 6-3
THE MODERATOR: Straight-set win today. How are you feeling after the match?
GAEL MONFILS: Feel great. Great match. I think I played a very solid tennis. Can't complain when you start a slam like that. You're happy.
Just wondering a bit about my neck because I blocked my neck last week. Obviously it was better and better. Today it was good, so I'm happy.
THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. What are your thoughts on how the whole Djokovic situation unfolded?
GAEL MONFILS: To be honest, I just think about the tournament now.
Q. What about the opportunity that his absence creates for other players?
GAEL MONFILS: To be honest, it's great for you guys. I don't know. I don't see any opportunity. You have opportunity to play a match after each win. I don't know where he was in the draw, who got the opportunities or whatever.
You know me, I'm just happy to have another opportunity to win another match, maybe go to another third one in the Australian Open.
