Q. Are you satisfied with the results in this Australian Open?
You know, I always want to go further and do better.
Q. What did you say to yourself when you went down Love 5 so quickly?
I just tried to get into the rallies more, try to step in a little bit more, and try to put more pressure on her because she was just putting a lot of pressure on me.
Q. Were you nervous at the beginning of the match?
Q. Set point down in the first round on Court 15 to this, have you exceeded your own expectations?
But like I said, I always want to do better. To me it's not a surprise. I've been working hard my whole life to do this, play at Grand Slams and do well. It's not an overnight thing and it's not a surprise to me.
So I'm just going to go back to the practice courts and keep working hard.
Q. After 5 Love down you played pretty even with her for a while. Any reason you couldn't sort of quite turn it?
I felt like she didn't give me much breathing space, much room to do what I want to do on the court. I tried to put pressure, but she just played too good at moments.
Q. A year ago when you didn't have great success here, if someone came up to you and said, Don't worry, you'll make the semis next year, what would you have thought?
Yeah, I mean, I did lose in quallies here last year. Last year I still have some good results besides that. I think, you know, it's just a process. I learned a lot last year. I've slowly been making my way up. I don't want to stop here. I want to keep going.
Q. What's the one single best thing that Nick brings to you as a person and a player?
But the advice he gives me as well just before walking on the court is, Just enjoy it. I have been these past two weeks. I've been enjoying my time on the court.
Q. Was today's match different than playing a normal match?
Something you have to learn to really, you know, just get into it, go for it right away. But I feel I got into the match a little bit, but it wasn't enough.
Q. Did you feel tighter, more weight on your shoulders?
But at the same time I played two matches on Rod Laver, as well. I felt like I'd been there and played well on that court. So I just wanted to try to do the same. But I had a really good opponent today as well.
Q. This is a fairly big deal at home. Have you been feeling that in any way, been able to sense that?
It's just kind of my job, a normal thing for me. It's exciting to be here, but at the same time, you know, I want to do better and do more. So it's just kind of like my job. It just feels normal.
Q. Which way do you think it will change your life as a tennis player?
Q. How excited were you to get a tweet from Justin Bieber?
Q. What do you take away from this tournament? Self confidence? Experience?
Even though I was playing matches, I felt I was getting better as the matches went on, which is a good thing. I want to build on that and practice and keep raising my level.
For sure I'll walk away with confidence.
Q. Back in Montréal, did you ever play for the team at the private school you went to?
Q. There's been a lot of compliments on what you've accomplished here. Are there any in particular you've heard of from somebody that you respect that left a mark with you?
I mean, you know, what matters to me most is what my family or my coaches say to me. But maybe someone will tell me what other people told me, but I don't really know.
Q. What is your goal as a tennis player, including winning a Grand Slam?
I'm not there yet, so I have a lot of work to do.
Q. If you could choose one of the four slams, which one would you most like to hold up the trophy for?
Q. Do you think this success will change your life and you will get more endorsements?
Q. Can you explain the gift.
