Jim Courier


Q. Hi, Jim. What has been the differences when you have lost to this guy and have beaten him, if there is a general -- is there a general consistent theme?

JIM COURIER: Today is just -- it was just a case really that I didn't play very well and that is going to be tough for me to beat a player that is clever like Mark, if I am not playing well. I just had one of those days, didn't come, and I haven't had too many so far this year and, hopefully, I won't have too many more. I will have to try and fight through it. I tried to fight through it today and unfortunately couldn't quite get through it.

Q. Jim, you played Mark a number of times. When you do play him, does your mind flash back to wining the previous matches that you had against him?

JIM COURIER: Well, I mean, I try and take what I have done well against him in the past and keep that in my mind on what I need to do to beat him. I have a general idea because we have played a lot of matches together and we do practice on occasion also in Palm Springs, so, you know, we are very familiar with each other's games. I don't think there is many surprises out there.

Q. He is a player that can do so many different things against you. Is that pretty frustrating out there?

JIM COURIER: Well, this is the fourth time I have played him this year, and he did the same things today that he has done the other times and I beat him pretty handily the other times. It is just -- it was more me than him today, I think.

Q. Take a few days off and get on clay?

JIM COURIER: I am not going on the clay for another couple of months. I am going to Asia.

Q. How much of the fact was the wind today?

JIM COURIER: Well, the conditions are the same for everybody. I am from Florida, so I generally adjust better to the wind than most people, but, you know, I don't know if that had anything to do with the way I played. Maybe it did. Maybe it didn't. But, you know, that is a poor excuse, because it is the same for both players, so I don't really want to use that as an excuse.

Q. I kind of just meant fairly -- I am not --

JIM COURIER: It was a normal Florida breezy kind of day.

Q. You have been able to turn around last year into a good start this year. I think I have read that you are trying to be more relaxed in your approach - I don't know if that is true. Do you feel good about continuing that approach?

JIM COURIER: I am just going day-by-day. I am taking things as they come - just like anybody else.
