Michael Chang


Q. Michael are you disappointed?

MICHAEL CHANG: Well, to a point. I think I had a quite a few chances today, as I had in the last few matches that I played, but I think that there - in looking over the past years, there is - at least I feel and Carl feels - there has been progress in my game, and that is a step forward. And, you know, as long as we know that, we are taking a step in the right direction, then it is okay. Obviously, I like to look for bigger and better things and end up coming here, so hopefully these kind of close matches will start, you know, start coming my way a little bit more.

Q. Michael, you said after your game against Wally Masur that you thought God wanted you to win. How do you see it after today's game?

MICHAEL CHANG: Well, I feel God has his timetable in everything. I would never have guessed that going into the French Open in '89 to expect to win it. I have had my fair share of ups and downs and wins and losses - as everybody else has - on and off the court. I just feel that everything is very much set in his time. A lot of times we don't necessarily know why things happen the way that they do. But I believe that there is a reason for everything, and a lot of times -- sometimes through losses, for example, you are able to gain knowledge and mature as a person, and a lot of good things can come from losing, as well as a lot of good things can come from winning as well. But I think you lose -- when you lose, you learn a lot more. I think it is all in the process of becoming a better tennis player and the process of becoming a better person. Because I think in life - I think you can't expect to go through life winning all the time. If you are winning all the time and you have that first loss and you are not able to handle it, then you are on your way to a serious downfall. I feel that God has really been building me up step by step, and in his time, is in his time. It is not for me to really try to mend and discover, but I know that I have to do my part. I have to constantly try to keep working hard and keep trying to progress in my tennis career and work on those things that I need to work on, and that I know I can improve and solidify those points in my game that that are my strong points.

Q. Thank you.
