Important. It is a collective decision to support this country. think about them.

It was a trap match, I got away with it…
I said that, he’s not a bad player. I knew he was eye-catching, that he had a lot of spirit when he played for his country. I went into the match well, but he changed his tactic in the second set, and tried things, trying to get ahead of me. But I kept focused on the goal. I’m no longer a beginner, I have a little more experience. I won the game on management, not necessarily on level.

You had two definite points to save in the second set by taking on your responsibilities…
I love the quote:Bend but don’t break. ” It was a time when I wasn’t necessarily playing well. I thought: ”Focus on your services. And I go back to 40-40. Do not panic. And behind me, I finished my best two games. Tennis wasn’t my best, but there were some good things sometimes. I was solid at breaking points.

Was there a little tension? I was sometimes feverish in front…
There were complicated passes, I forced him sometimes, but he managed to make the moves he needed in the second set. I don’t remember playing many second pitches in that half. With a forehand, try a lot. But I stuck to my intentions and won two sets without breaking a tie. It proves that everything went well.

This is your first Davis Cup singles win…
I love playing for France, I enjoy and have fun. If we have to start over in match five, I’m going! I tried to be smart with the audience, and not waste too much energy on it, relying on it when necessary. You handled it well. But it was so wonderful. »
