Q. How afraid were you to play Wawrinka?
I was excited to do my best and take the opportunity, but unfortunately not able to do so at this time.
Q. What's the prognosis for the back? For example, for Davis Cup, going forward, what the effects may be?
I was advised to pull out and not to step on the court, that I'd just be putting my season in danger. So it was just the smart move really to pull out, and, yeah, be safe with my body and try and get ready hopefully in time for Davis Cup.
But I guess we'll see how I progress in the healing process.
Q. That's a significantly different prognosis than you were hearing last night on the court from the physio. Am I right?
So, yeah, it was not good news to hear. But at the same time, fortunate that I didn't do any severe damage or anything that I would regret.
Q. What would you say the percentage is for Davis Cup? It's coming up quickly.
Like I said, there's nothing that's really wrong with it right now. It's just more preventive, something that could be, and I'm supposed to keep off it for a little while.
But there's definitely, you know, a good potential that I'll be ready for Davis Cup.
