Goran Ivanisevic


Q. Do you think you lost this match about the volley?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: It is not because the volley. I mean, I had my chances. I didn't make it. Every time on big points I didn't make them. When I play him, I don't know what happened. He was playing better on big points, that is it.

Q. You had your chances to lose one or two points. How frustrating is that (inaudible)?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: It is pretty bad because every time when it is a match with him, a tiebreak, I am losing and the second time in two years I am losing the same match against him here. I mean, I had five first points in the tiebreaker, I mean, to be 5-0, I had five easy balls to put -- to win a point, but all easy mistakes, I mean, two passing shot, one volley for me, I mean, and those things if you give the player like him, you don't have a chance. Then 5-3, put me back 5-4 and then 5-All another doublefault. I thought I could have saved serving and I did a doublefault. But I had too many chances and I didn't do anything, so it is no way against him that I am going to win like that.

Q. Did you feel as if you were playing the whole crowd as well as Boris.

GORAN IVANISEVIC: I don't care about crowd. They can scream even harder, you know, I mean, it is better for him, but I don't care; I had to win this match today; I had chances in the tiebreak. Doesn't matter crowd or not, I had my chances; I didn't do it.

Q. Did the match two years ago go through your mind when you were playing the tiebreak?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: Didn't go through my mind at all, but it is frustrating, I mean, it is all these tight matches I lose against him here, but I mean, what can you do; it is another two matches I won one set, and it can be helpful for the next two matches. I mean, it is not over yet.

Q. Does this feel like a round robin match to you or it seemed like more?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: I mean, it is nice to beat him; doesn't matter -- especially here, you know, because two years ago I had bad experience and now this match, I wanted to win. I mean, I don't like to lose to anybody, so I wanted to win, and I couldn't do it again.

Q. Do you think it more difficult to beat Boris here in Frankfurt in this atmosphere crowd behind him?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: Yeah, but he didn't play so well today. I mean, he was -- I was pretty bad match, anyway, and he was nervous; I was nervous, a lot of mistakes and then in the end, you know, he was better.
