September 6, 1998

Marcelo Rios

Flushing Meadows, New York

Q. You were quite in control of the match after you won the third set. What happened?

MARCELO RIOS: Well, I think he broke me in the fourth set. After he broke me in the fourth set, I think I went down a little bit. He was serving better. I didn't play very good since all the tournament. Even if I was two sets to one, I was thinking about I was to do the things good, hitting the ball pretty good. But I think these couple months been a good experience. Got to work harder now.

Q. Do you feel you can turn it again over in your favor at some point?

MARCELO RIOS: I think it's not the end of the world, losing this match. I can play much better than that. I take a little week off and start practicing again.

Q. Did anything in Magnus Larsson's play surprise you today?

MARCELO RIOS: I play him a lot of times. He served good. I think he's serving good, he's playing good. I think he served pretty good. But like I say, I think he didn't beat me. I think I made a lot of mistakes, made a lot of errors.

Q. But you aren't disappointed that you lost?

MARCELO RIOS: Well, I think I'm not going to be happy if I didn't win.

Q. The fact that you missed in a Grand Slam, is it more disappointing?

MARCELO RIOS: Than what?

Q. The fact that you didn't win a Grand Slam until now.

MARCELO RIOS: I think I'm having a pretty good year. Haven't had very good the Slams.
