Q. How did you find the pace of the court today?
Q. What about the weather, the heat? The conditions?
Anyway, I won in three sets. In the second and the third I was a few times break down, but in important moments I played better than him.
Q. Do you like the very hot weather to play in?
You know, I know tomorrow is gonna be more hot, and after tomorrow again.
Q. Can you tell us why you left your coach after such a long time? And something about your new coach.
You know, Javier is very special for me. He's a good friend, and just we decide to stop.
Q. And about your new coach?
Q. You said last week was one of your worst matches of your career when you lost in the semifinal. Were you pleased with how you responded and came back?
I'm well today. Today I play good some moments the match, and I have to be positive.
Q. Looked like you wanted to get it over pretty quickly. You raced out to a pretty good lead. Can you tell us what happened after that? You started about 5 Love, I think.
Anyway, the most important is win. And today maybe I didn't play my best tennis, but I won. That's important.
Q. With the draw the way it's fallen, looks like a good opportunity for you to go deep again.
Now I want to rest. I want to enjoy this moment and be with my team, and tomorrow I will talk with my coach about my opponent.
Q. A lot of the media aren't really giving you a chance in Melbourne. Does it take the pressure off moving forward?
