"There were some concerns when you canceled your training on Monday, the day after your loss, to Kei Nishikori. Did you just have to rest on the holidays?
Yes, and I will do it tomorrow (On Wednesday) because it worked (Smile). What was important was not me ahead, my reverse or my service, I thought it was my head. And about it, from time to time, you need a break. During the last two months I played a lot of tennis. I saw my game against Nishikori on the way back to the hotel. Long trip! We had time to discuss it. My coach told me: enjoy the day with your family and return happily today (Tuesday). When you face Tai, it's important, head, not blows. My shots are there. I felt it today (tuesday) So I'm very happy, that was the right decision. I showed a reaction to my first game.
"There should not always be a knife between the teeth"
How can you explain your late Sunday performance when you see it?
I do not know what happened. Maybe it's the format I've got. You do not always have a knife between teeth, just like in another tournament, where, when you have problems, you know that if you do not crash, you're at home after 30 minutes. There, you know that what you are going to do is play three games. I felt good all day. During the game, I got a little sad, I saw a bad thing. Kei played horribly in the first eight games, and I would have said to myself: "Great, I do not need rhythm, that's it, it's good for me". But that does not matter if you're not working well. This is the first game, it's normal. I think I'm too negative. So it was important that I remember how great it was to play here on the O2 arena. I like to play in London. Today, when they spent their 10 years in O2, it reminded me of the pleasure and the game in this room. There is no reason to be negative. The tournament has just begun.
On Thursday, you will have to face Kevin Anderson, who beat you in Wimbledon in decisive qualifying game in July. How do you come across it?
I could win and do not match, it does not depend on me. It's the same. If I do not sell it, it's because I do not deserve it. My bottom line here is playing a good last-minute flower game, trying to beat Kevin. Now he's playing very well. He has led an incredible season. He played very well in Wimbledon against me. I paid attention to it. My first match was not great, it was better today and I have to continue with Kevin if I want to have the opportunity to continue on my way to London.
"Julien is a nice guy"
Do you know Giulian Benneteau's comments, which show that you are benefiting from good planning? Do you have a reaction?
No, I do not.
You do not know what he said?
If, but in fact I do not want to talk about this topic during Masters, be honest. I hope you understand why because there are tennis celebrations here. For me this is the season finals. I like to play here. This radio interview was held more than a week ago and is now being restored. Julien is a nice guy, I know him since the juniors. I think all this has been removed from the context. I do not need to comment. I'd like to close the file, not add it, so you have to write something.
Is it true that your agent asked you to play at Armstrong USA Open this year? Does it usually make such requests?
Sometimes I ask: do you want to play on Monday or Tuesday? Sometimes people ask me: do you want to play day or evening? Sometimes they ask the agent. Sometimes with me. Yes, sometimes we are told. But the US Open asked me to play on Monday. I play on Tuesday night. It's been like that for twenty years. Sometimes I help, sometimes not. But from what I have heard, many things are wrong to make it clear. "
