Here's the presser:
Q: What was the key of winning today's match and what do you anticipate for your match versus Nadal?
A: My serve, to be confident on the baseline was the key. It's mostly the serve. Well Nadal is tough to match but he's still there, fighting. He's dangerous; that's why he's number one in the world
. It's complicated. I have to play really well to have a chance against him.
Q: Can you just talk about the crowd throughout the tournament, especially tonight? Do you expect that same amount of support when you play Nadal?
A: I'm very pleased they are there to support me. I really appreciate that they've been very supportive and very nice to me. So hopefully they'll be very supportive tomorrow. I'm sure Nadal has a lot of fans here. He deserves to have a lot of supporters.
Q: Any extra motivation to play Nadal tomorrow knowing there may be fewer chances to play one of the best right now?
A: I know I will play better tomorrow. Nadal is going to be the favorite. I have no pressure; I'm just going to play my game, go for it, be aggressive and then we'll see. It's going to be my biggest match in a long time so I'm pretty excited.
Q: You had a very exciting performance today, and we enjoyed today's match. Are you going to stay in tennis for a longer time?
A: I don't think today's match is going to be the key to my entire career. I have no pressure. If I were playing to defend something, it would be different. I would get nervous. It would be a whole different ball game but now it’s practice.
Q: Any regrets in last season or in your career?
A: I don't have any disappointments this year. Even though I had some close matches I was 20 in the world in May. If I had won them, I'd be around 15 in the world but otherwise I played very well. I go on the courts and practice and do my job in the gym. I'm happy with myself, happy with the last year. I'm still 52 in the world
, so it's not a bad ranking to finish my career.
(is that where he moves to after this win?)
