I will try to take the matches back to back. I didn’t have a great night and today was tough. In the first part of the match I had a terrible feeling. I don’t want to take credit away from Tomasz (Machac), who deserved to win, but I don’t know what to think about this match. I’d rather forget about it. I also don’t know how I managed to win the second set.

When I came here I expected to play more than one match, but I played three. But I would like to feel better. It’s not nice to suffer like that on the court. It’s hard to concentrate on tennis when you have other things on your mind. I just hope I’ll be ready and in good health for Roland-Garros.
