September 3, 1994
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK
Q. Did he do anything differently in the fourth and fifth set or was it your fault?
MARC ROSSET: Sorry?
Q. Changing of the match after you led 2-1, what went differently after that? Did he
pick up his game or did you let down?
MARC ROSSET: I don't know. I really -- I have no idea about this match. I have nothing
to say because I play five sets and I feel exactly like if he was just practicing half
hour and go off the court.
Q. Why do you think that?
MARC ROSSET: Because there was like no rallies at all, and every time I tried to read
the forehand -- I don't know, it was like a day where I have no feelings, so it is just
like if I go out of the court and even if I win this match, it is the same for me. It is
like if I -- I didn't play today.
Q. How soon in the match did that feeling start to grow? Was it right a way?
MARC ROSSET: After the first point.
Q. So it was more the mood you went onto the court than how he played?
MARC ROSSET: The match today was like I ace, win or serve then the guy -- I return, he
tried for winner, I miss. That is it. It was that for five sets, and I was leading two
sets to love because maybe he miss a little bit more, and when he start to miss less, then
I lost. So for me it was no fun. Not because I lost, but because it was nothing.
Q. Is he sort of an unorthodox type of player? Is he a different sort of player to
boost the people?
MARC ROSSET: I have nothing to say about his game. He can play the way he want, but for
me you know, sometimes you play a match and you win; you have no feeling; you go on the
court and you feel like you didn't play a match. So for me, I have this feeling right now.
Q. Have you ever had that feeling after playing five sets? That is a long time to be
out on the court.
MARC ROSSET: When you play like five sets you play three hours at least. We play five
sets and we play less than three hours, I mean, I am even not tired, you know, I can play
five more sets, and so it is strange.
Q. Do you think this this match today was a reason maybe why tennis should be changed;
why the game is all serve?
MARC ROSSET: No, maybe -- I don't know. I don't know. It is not my you know, I am not
thinking about that. I just tried to concentrate to play tennis and but I am sure that
maybe for the people today was no fun to see this match.
