After winning, he said: “I was a little bit lost during the third set – I was feeling tired physically – but I just said to myself, ‘if I lose this match, I want to be proud of myself’. I thought, ‘let’s go more aggressive’. If it doesn’t work out, at least I tried. I wanted to fight to the end, fight for every point. If I lose, I lose. I managed to win, so I’m very proud.”
