Goran Ivanisevic


Q. What happened the first two sets?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: I don't know, he played okay, so good. I didn't have a lot of chances. I was always behind. I don't know, I think he played much better than me first two sets.

Q. How did you feel your game was?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: It was not so great. I served really bad. When I need, I didn't put one first serve in. I didn't play great. I played pretty bad. Actually, I am playing like pretty bad, so it is nothing surprising for me.

Q. Are you lacking in confidence?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: I don't know what I am lacking. I don't know. It is just -- I had a great draw, if I can pick the better draw I couldn't pick it, but just - I don't know. If I cannot win a set with 5-0 in the tiebreaker, so then I don't know what can I win anymore.

Q. You really fight in the last two sets, but in the beginning what was it that you were lacking, the first --

GORAN IVANISEVIC: I mean, he was just better. I mean, I couldn't put three balls in the court. Just missed everything. I didn't look for my chance. I didn't come in. I didn't do anything. Just relied on my serve and that was not working, and that is it.

Q. He was taking pace off the ball. How much of a factor was that for you?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: Sit okay with me, but I just -- I didn't do anything. I mean, he give me a lot of short balls, and I didn't take any advantage of those balls, even now, last point. I mean, I could finish the point ten times to come in and I just hit like an idiot from the back. Sure I am going to miss a --

Q. Why was that?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: I don't know why was that. I have six chances to come in, I didn't come once, so that is the way.

Q. Does the heat affect you in anyway?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: It is humid. It is okay. I was okay feeling, feeling okay, so I could play another 2, three sets, there was no problem.

Q. It doesn't make you slower?


Q. Had you similar trouble in Indy losing that match to Arias you talked about trying to change things around. Have you thought -- can you think again of how you might change things?

GORAN IVANISEVIC: This is two different type of players, Arias and Costa. Costa is a good player and I mean -- I don't know; I mean, he can play good, but I didn't do anything to hurt him. If I put first serve then, okay, I hit an ace, so something happen. But, if not, I am in trouble. Then I have to hit winners, but you cannot hit winners every time.

Q. Thank you.
