Roland Garros 2010: Novak Djokovic's 02. June Interview

Posted by Lana On 6/03/2010 07:33:00 AM

Novak Djokovic

J. MELZER/N. Djokovic
3-6, 2-6, 6-2, 7-6(3), 6-4

Q. When you were up 2 0 in the third set, not many people would have expected that you gonna lose that match. What is the reason for that? What do you think?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, I want to congratulate him first. I think he played really well in the last three sets.
But I made a big mistake, you know, there. I made him come back into the match with my unforced errors, and then he caught the momentum and he was playing really well, especially on his service games.
Yeah, I'm very disappointed, obviously, to lose the match that I was in control of totally a set and a break. This is tennis, you know. This is Grand Slams. You always have to play up to the end, because these things happen, especially at this stage of tournament.

Q. Your passing shot on the last game, was it touching the line for you?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: We can talk about this. If it was, it was. I don't know, really.
From my side and from my perspective, it was looking good. There was no space between the line and the mark, and that means the ball is good.
I don't know why the chair umpire got that decision. And there was another ball on 4 All, my advantage, as well, and the ball was out. But, you know, this is all part of the sport. What can you do?
Sometimes you have to be lucky as well with the calls.

Q. Do you know that Hawk Eye showed your passing shot was good, just barely? Did anybody tell you that?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: What can I say? Should I complain or what? I don't know. This is life.

Q. During the last two sets we saw you very often looking across the net at your opponent and shaking your head. Can you tell us what you were thinking about in those moments?

Q. Were you wondering about how your opponent was playing?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I said I don't want to speak about it. Next question, please.

Q. To get back to the line call and Hawk Eye, you said, What can you do? Well, you are a member of the player council, and as a player on the council, you could suggest to the Grand Slams that Hawk Eye is adopted on clay as it is anywhere else.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: No, I don't think there is any sense on getting Hawk Eye on clay courts. You can see the mark. I mean, for somebody there is a chair umpire and so many years and years experience, and to make such a mistake at that point is unbelievable, you know.
I mean, I don't know what was going on with him, but the ball was looking good from everywhere. Even on the TV you could see it was good. So, yeah, I mean, I can't blame him for losing this match, of course. That's one call.
Maybe that call came in my favor and maybe I would break him on that that game would be Love 30 and he would feel a little pressure. But I should have done my job earlier. That's definitely my fault, and I paid the consequences.

Q. What do you think the biggest difference is in Jurgen maybe from a year or two ago? He's not a young player, but he seems to have improved, especially in his toughness mentally.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: He's definitely a good player. I didn't expect an easy match today. I was very surprised with the way I was playing for two and a half sets. I was really aggressive and didn't make a lot of unforced errors and putting a lot of returns back.
But then, you know, I backed up a little bit and he used it. He started making much less unforced errors, and he was very aggressive using his serve very good. He definitely is a quality player.
What can I say else? I wish him good luck to the end.

Q. Concerning good luck, he will need good luck and a lot of good shots against Nadal. What do you think? Does he have a chance?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Everybody has a chance against everybody. Look, I mean, it's semifinals. For him it's first time. He doesn't have anything to lose, so Nadal is favored, but that's it.

Q. I know it's very difficult to feel positive on a day like this, Novak, but another Grand Slam is quickly around the corner. Do you think that's a good thing you, that you have a big, big tournament to concentrate on straightaway?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Look, I don't know what I'm thinking in this moment, because disappointment after the match that I was supposed to win. So I'm not thinking about I'm not thinking about Wimbledon in this moment.
Tomorrow is a new day, so I guess this is not the first time I have this feeling. I will have to overcome it in order to get ready.
