THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. Nicolas, what was it like being out there with him today?
NICOLAS ESCUDE: I think today Andre can telling me more than "Thank you." With all the opportunity I get during this match, and I miss all the opportunities. So that's why I lose.
Q. Is he a guy who can win this tournament?
NICOLAS ESCUDE: For sure. All the time when Andre play a tournament, he can win it. But in Grand Slam, you never know. So we're gonna see for the next round.
Q. What was the most difficult thing?
NICOLAS ESCUDE: For him?
Q. For you, against him.
NICOLAS ESCUDE: For me against him? To get more concentrate, more regulate, and that's -- I didn't do it today.
