There is an interview of Gaston after the match on the Sopot website:

Gaston Gaudio after the match against Boris Pashanski.
Gaston Gaudio was understandably satisfied with his victory over Boris Pashanski.
"I played very well in the first set, I was a little nervous in the second. I did not take advantage of my chances. I had a couple of break points that I did not win. He played really well in the tie break and I lost the set. He was visibly tired in the third set and I was able to win 6/4" - said the Argentinean.
When asked about the ball he hit between his legs Gaudio replied - "I play like that quite often, it usually goes in, this time it did not".
Some journalists wondered weather he played too defensively or not.
"I always try to make as few errors as possible, I did not really feel like I needed to take risks, especially since I am not feeling as confident as I would like to. I am not playing my best tennis right now" explained Gaston.
When asked about his health Gaudio replied - "I feel really good. I am not playing as well as I played two years ago but physically I feel good. My goal is to regain the confidence I had".
"Every clay court tournament I go to I feel like I have a chance to win. I would like to win here but first I have to play the second round, just take it a match at a time and we will see what happens" - said the South American player.
