Carlos Costa


Q. How do you feel now after having your match to your advantage?

CARLOS COSTA: I feel great. I didn't expect this match.

Q. You didn't expect to win? When you say you didn't expect to win, but you already beat him?

CARLOS COSTA: It is different on claycourt. It is very different on claycourt than hardcourt.

Q. What made you dive for that ball at that point? Did he ever win a point like that before?

CARLOS COSTA: I dived because I had to get the point and there was a little bit of luck and I got it.

Q. Could you talk about the tiebreak being down five nothing and coming back.

CARLOS COSTA: I started tiebreaker very tired, you know, but then he gave me couple of opportunities; I took them, and he gave me opportunity to, you know, to continue and I took it and I won the tiebreaker.

Q. How do you feel he played?

CARLOS COSTA: I really don't know because I rarely seen him play on hardcourts. My specialty is on claycourt, so I barely see him playing hardcourt.

Q. Were you surprised he didn't come in anymore behind his big serve?

CARLOS COSTA: Again, he doesn't have an idea how he plays on hardcourt. I never played hardcourts with him or seen him that much. My specialty is clay court, so I haven't had the opportunity to see Goran playing hardcourt that much.

Q. Did you feel comfortable on hardcourt today?

CARLOS COSTA: Yes, I felt very comfortable. I don't play as much on hardcourts, but, yes, I do feel very comfortable.

Q. Was it your plan to change speeds and keep him off balance? That seemed to be what you were doing.

CARLOS COSTA: Today than the other days?

Q. Yes.

CARLOS COSTA: Today I have much better serve and my first serve percentage was much better.

Q. Playing on a court that is not your specialty, how did you find your game today; in the straight sets and in front of a grand -- front of an aces shooter?

CARLOS COSTA: You know, played very well the. He gave me the opportunities; I took them. That is why I played well.

Q. Are you going to celebrate your victory in any special way today?

CARLOS COSTA: No, because I have to play tomorrow. After tomorrow.

Q. You had such a great year last year; then had you some bad times. Do you feel you are coming back now?

CARLOS COSTA: I don't know. Maybe. I hope so, but I have to try to play the next year in the big tournaments claycourt; I have to play good and then to get points and go up in the ranking.

Q. Thank you.
