Re: Richard In The Australian Summer 2012- Sydney
A much better second set indeed but even with Istomin tight as a drum towards the closing stages, he couldn't pull out that set, although it was of a lot better quality.
Istomin certainly did play better than anyone Richard beat at Hopman Cup last week and yesterday's match with Fognini didn't exactly prepare him well for today either. Wish he'd employ a more aggressive strategy from the start of his matches, but I know it's hard for him to break out of his comfort zone.
Onwards to Melbourne, hopefully he leaves the negative attitude behind.
Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.
Maybe the sky will fall?
