And Alex Corretja won 6-4 6-1 6-3! Congratulations, Alex!

He was just too good in Kitzbuhl this year. He owned this tournament. What killer performances!

Juanqui!

But on the other hand, Mosquito made it to the final, yahoooo!!!!

Interview with Alex Corretja after the match. I transcribed this from Austrian TV coverage.

INT: Congratulations, Alex. It was so impressive this year. Do you have an explanation?

AC: Well, I think I played one of my best tournaments here and also in Gstaad two weeks ago. It gave me a lot of confidence to come here in Kitzbuhl and I really played unbelievable. I beat three of teh top players in the world on clay pretty easy. Pretty amazing, I think I played unbelievably good tennis, pretty aggressive, and that's amazing for me.

INT: Why was it so clear today? What do you think?

AC: Well, I think I was doing more things with the ball, I was moving more angles, I was serving better, I was coming to the net more than him. Even in the first set, I lost my serve three times or something. I stayed focued because I realised that I could break him many times, cause he didn't serve too well either, so...

INT: Must have been like a dream, not even playing one tiebreak, not dropping a set... What do you say?

AC: Yeah, it's a dream come true, I mean imagine... I won in Gstaad too without dropping a set and now I come here, I didn't drop a set yet. I hope next time I drop a set I'm not gonna break the raquet, you know, because I'm gonna be upset, thinking how is it possible. So I gotta keep my feet on the ground and really understand that tennis is really hard these days and I have to keep working to keep my level.

INT: You have to play the doubles still. Is this a problem for you?

AC: Well, right now I feel like... of course I'm a little tired, but I have a lot of respect for Arnold, and I'm gonna try my best, I'm gonna try to win. Of course, I feel unbelievable on the court, so I'm gonna try to play one good match to see if I could get another trophy.

INT: Thank you very much and enjoy your celebration.

Angry Alex when do you win the French Open?

Yes they started early, didn't they?

Alex is very impressive at the moment!

Thanks a lot Layla for posting and translating the interview.

Ahheeem. You're welcome, but I didn't actually translate the interview, I just listened to the tape and wrote it down, mistakes and all. They spoke in English. Alex's English is much better than Juanqui's, I must say.

Oh, and Alex and Juan Carlos hugged when they shook hands and Juanqui didn't seem so upset about losing. This isn't Roland Garros, after all.

You did, didn't you, Becca. And I didn't believe you. Maybe I shouldn't have been sitting throughout the match. I forgot to try standing up.
