THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. You had to fight off a lot of breakpoints, didn’t you?
FILIP KRAJINOVIC: Yeah. It was a tough match. I faced a lot of breakpoints. I think I played really aggressive on that ones.
I’m really happy to play in quarterfinal. Beating Baghdatis for me is good win. He likes to play here. He played semis and final. I am excited about quarters. I’ll be ready for tomorrow.
Q. What did you think you did particularly well?
FILIP KRAJINOVIC: I think I play aggressive when I needed. I served well when I needed. That was the key. I stay with him. Yeah, it was a patient game.
Q. Did you expect the match would end in just two sets?
FILIP KRAJINOVIC: I didn’t know. I’m always preparing to play a long match, same I did today. I think he start better than me, 2-0 up, Love-30.
I come back after that. It was equal match. I think I play really well in tiebreak. I’m happy to finish in two sets. I think we play 1 hour and 30, 40. So was long match.
