Richey Reneberg


Q. Talk about his serve. His serve was just phenomenal.

RICHEY RENEBERG: He has got a good serve and, you know, actually I felt like I was playing pretty well. At the end something happened with a break; I drank a lot of water, came back out, was disoriented, kind of light headed; kind of threw away the last 3 games. I felt I played pretty well. He has a good serve, he is a good player.

Q. Obviously it helped breaking him early and I know you had --

RICHEY RENEBERG: I served for second set up two sets to love; that was an important set, obviously, because I think it seemed very hot and humid out there, you know, I was disappointing up 2 sets to love. I think I had a pretty good shot of winning. I tried to come in that game. I came in like three times, and he passed me three times, so that was that.

Q. Was he doing something to draw you in or was that your --

RICHEY RENEBERG: To come in the net?

Q. Yeah.

RICHEY RENEBERG: I pretty much wanted to play my game. He really didn't do that much from the baseline to hurt me and I know he is capable, but tonight, he basically just got a lot of balls back and I had chances to dictate a fair amount of the match; I felt like I did. Just played a couple of errors and he played well. He played well, I thought, on the big points and so that was the difference.

Q. How do you assess his game he plays that flat, hard --

RICHEY RENEBERG: He has got a big serve. He is dangerous from the backcourt, you know, tough guy to play because, you know, not only does he have a pretty easy time generally holding serve, he is able to break a fair amount. Good ground strokes, really good backhand; he moves well, and he is very strong. You always get the impression that he is, you know, has a lot of strength and he seems to -- I think that if he serves well, has a shot, but I think he would have to be serving awfully well if he played Courier. Courier would make him hit more balls. He is 19. Obviously he is going to get a lot better.

Q. At this point you think he has a strategy other than thinking out there, do you feel that?

RICHEY RENEBERG: Yeah, a lot of times when you are playing on hardcourt you are serving as well as he does a lot of times; I don't know how much strategy there is to it. I mean, obviously he is a great player and has great shots. He is strong enough, he can pretty much do what he wants. And at least that is the way I see it. Yeah, I mean, I don't know, it didn't seem there was much strategy in the game today as there used to be. But, you know, a lot of it is just a couple of shots hit; like a big server, and if a guy gets a first serve in, you are lucky to get the return back. So it is more power, I think, than anything else these days. He has got a very good power game. I think he will be winning a lot of matches for a long time.

Q. Now that the season is over I would just-- kind of assess your season.

RICHEY RENEBERG: Summer. I probably had the best summer I ever had; it is nice. It would have been nice to end it doing a little bit better here, but for some reason I never played that well in the Grand Slams. I actually thought, you know, this- the two matches I played- first one wasn't a long match; I thought I played pretty well. Hopefully going into the next year, I will be able to do something in the Grand Slams, and, you know, we will see.

Q. Thank you.
