Thomas Enqvist


THE MODERATOR: First question for Thomas.

Q. That went pretty quickly tonight. You felt good?

THOMAS ENQVIST: Yeah, I felt very good I think. Played solid and served well today. Didn't face one breakpoint I think the whole match. I'm happy with the way I played.

Q. Were you surprised to win so easily, so fast?

THOMAS ENQVIST: Of course a little bit. I mean he's been playing extremely well this week, and you don't think about it when you're actually out there. But of course afterwards you didn't expect maybe to win 6-2, 6-2. ...(Inaudible) I played very well I think.

Q. How do you look at the matchup tomorrow with Tim?

THOMAS ENQVIST: I think it's going to be a good match. He's coming into the net a lot. Usually I like to play a serve-and-volleyer. So if I can be returning as good as I have done this week so far, I think I have a very good chance.

Q. Can you think back to the beginning of the tournament, you won that third-set tiebreaker in the first match. You could have easily been out of it.


Q. Do you ever look back and say things kind of took off from there?

THOMAS ENQVIST: Not really. You play so many close matches through the years, and it's like this sometimes, you know. You can play really well for a month or so, then maybe not have so much success because you lose a lot of close matches. You can start to win a few now, and you can play the same. But you win close matches, you can go all the way in a big tournament like this.

Q. No matchpoints, did you say?

THOMAS ENQVIST: No. Yeah. ...(Inaudible).

Q. Usually the night match here has been somewhat of a disadvantage because you have to come back and play the next day. Do you think maybe since he played such a long match this afternoon and you played so quickly tonight that maybe you're at a better advantage?

THOMAS ENQVIST: No, I don't think so. I think we're all fit enough to play, you know, even if you have a three-setter. I mean sometimes we even play five sets. It hasn't been this extreme the whole year so far, too. But I think we are out tomorrow in the same condition. It's going to be a lot of fun playing.

Q. (Inaudible)?
