Sebastien Grosjean defeated by Rafael Nadal: "I have some regrets because I've had some opportunities in the beginning of the 4th set. I believed in my chances, I tried to be agressive and avoid his forehand. It was not easy with this fresh weather. He took advantage of the wind and the heavy conditions because he's stronger than me. His ball squirts
more. The wind disturbed me more than him cos his ball turns more than mine. I also missed more easy points than yesterday, overall in my forehand. I missed several points which made me lose my confidence. He is impressive. He likes to attack his adversary. He's a fighter, he loves competitons and big events. He's the favorite with Federer. About the incident (on sunday), it was strange. I only asked the umpire to come down from his chair. After that, i didn't say anything. The crowd thought he has to do it. The crowd was behind me, and supported me the day of my birthday, it was difficult to calm them down cos they were angry against the umpire. It was also difficult to go back into the match. This tournament was very positive for me. I won three good matches and had a good resistance against one of the favorites. This is encouraging for the coming tournaments. I had pleasure on the court. Physically, I felt good, even against Nadal. I have to go on this way."
