So let's see. I am happy about a lot of things that I did tonight, so let's try to keep going and keep improving tomorrow."

Breaking down the match, he said:

"I enjoyed more 6-1. After that I think I played a basic set. At the beginning of the third I [played] a very bad game at the beginning and I had to come back. I did well. And then, again, I had a couple of mistakes in the serving for the match. Happy that I played another good game to finish."

On the crowd he added:

"I think the crowd was very nice with me too. I really didn't feel the crowd against me at all. I think it was 50-50 and it was supporting good tennis. I always enjoy good support here in Paris. I think the people here know how special this place is for me and how important and how much respect I always had for Roland Garros. I think they appreciate all the things that I did in this event, so I feel a lot of love from the people here."
