MONTE CARLO, MONACO
Q. Couldn't have been a tighter match. What feelings did you have when you walked to the net and it was over? What were the comments?
ALBERT COSTA: When?
Q. After match point.
ALBERT COSTA: No, no. We didn't talk. I say, "Good luck for tomorrow." That's it. He played an unbelievable match. I played also. But that's tennis. These things can happen.
Q. Even though you lost, did you feel that the crowd never was more into a match? I think they gave almost standing ovation in the end. Does it mean anything to you that you had a terrific match?
ALBERT COSTA: Yeah. I think that the people was enjoying the match. It was a three-hour match. We played like bull outside. I think that's good for the people, better than see other kind of playing.
