Q. Were you surprised by this?
SERGI BRUGUERA: By what?
Q. How he improve.
SERGI BRUGUERA: No. I play him two years ago. He was also playing very well. He's No. 2 in the world. I think he can play on any surface. Of course, he's always going to be better on clay, like everybody who grows up on the court. Sampras is -- his best surface, this one. He can also play here.
Q. Does he has a chance against Agassi or Sampras?
SERGI BRUGUERA: I don't know. I think maybe best of five. Maybe with his physical condition, it can help him.
Q. Do you approach hardcourt tournaments any differently than claycourt tournaments?
SERGI BRUGUERA: Well, I think I approach the claycourts thinking I'm better player than the other one. In hardcourt, doesn't happen this. I don't know how I'm going to play. I don't have the same confidence in myself when I'm playing on hardcourt.
