Paul-Henri Mathieu


THE MODERATOR: Questions in English.

Q. Mixed emotions after playing a great player so well for so long? One respect that you played at a high level, but obviously disappointed?
PAUL-HENRI MATHIEU: Yeah, I'm a bit disappointed, but I play -- I think I play a good match. He fight good till the end. I had a couple of chances in the second set, and I didn't take them. But, then it was tougher.
But it's not easy to play against him, because he plays very, very high. So you have to be 100% all the time.
So, no, he deserves to win.

Q. Hard to play a long match over your shoulder all the time?
PAUL-HENRI MATHIEU: Yeah, he's very hard to play because the ball is really high. So when you play for two, two hours and a half, under your shoulder - I mean over your shoulder - it's very tough. I mean, it's not easy.

Q. That's another thing?

Q. What did you do in the first set that you didn't do in the second and the third?
PAUL-HENRI MATHIEU: I didn't win (laughter).
No. Like I said, I mean, I was -- I mean, I think I play better in the first set. Then physically I felt maybe a little bit -- I felt better in the first set. That's why I didn't win the second set, I think.
But it's not easy because he played the level very, very high all the time, so you have to be 100% all the time. And this is very tough against him.
