Patrick Rafter

Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle Stuttgart, Germany

Q. You worked hard there.

PATRICK RAFTER: Yeah, I do whatever it takes to win. You know, obviously it is nice to be an easy match, but when you are playing someone as good as Todd, you are not going to get that.

Q. Did you expect him to return that well?

PATRICK RAFTER: Yeah, I know how Todd plays and, you know, and I know every time I play him, I am under pressure every time I serve, so, I know I have to serve very well. In the first set and a half, I didn't really serve that great. From then on, I just -- everything just came together. I hardly missed a serve.

Q. Three weeks ago in Munich you said you have no chance to become No. 1 already yet this year because Pete is so strong. Now he has lost very early. Many points are away. Do you see a new chance? Perhaps you win here; you are No. 2?

PATRICK RAFTER: That is what I have heard too. It is a long way to go and I have got to win two more very, very tough matches. So, I mean, it is still a long, long way away for me at this stage. For me just to get close to No. 2, it is a pretty exciting prospect.
