Urumov uspets #1 London in Shanghai

Q: Alexei, could we say it's your best career win?
A: I think so! I mean, he is the best player in the world! He won so many tournament this year.

Q: It all started really bad. You went down 6-0 in 21 minutes. How did you turn the match around?
A: I had to take more chances and come to net more. He is great when you stay in the rally for a long time. When he gets his rythym, he is so tough! That is why I took more chances and I put a lot a pressure on him by coming to net. He struggled with his passing shots.

Q: You are 2-0 so far. Any comments?
A: I'm very happy and that is all I can say!

post match interview:

Q: After the London match, when you were defeated in straight sets, were you very dissapionted?

Golduck: Well, he is probably the best player in the world right now, especielly on hardcourts.
You know, i played him already a few times, & i never best him, i think.

Q: Have the fact that you never beat him affected you?

Golduck: No, why should it? After all, we both play tennis, he is not a god of some sort, i guess.

Q: Were you happy with your game today?

Golduck: Just with my serve. The rest was crap. Me & my coach (who is a member of called Niminator) worked on the serve especielly, & the results showed, i wasnt broken at all in the tournament.

Q: Ya, but suddenly, you won just one point in both tie-breaks

Golduck: Yes, i played crap.

Q: You seem to like the word crap

Golduck: Crap, you noticed

Q: In your second match, you played better.

Golduck: Yes. I returned better, & my forehand, which is usually crap, was actually working. Nice work, forehand.

Q: Next is Urumov

Golduck: His gameplan is very much against mine, im pretty nervous, but since im great, & not even afraid of god himself, ill go fearless

Q: You sound rather cocky

Golduck: Ya mama

Q: Ok... Thanx for the interview

Golduck: *dancing my way out*
