"You beat Roger Federer for the third time this season and for the fifth time in seven clashes …
But to beat it, everything has to combine perfectly. Today, I think that was the case, I played very well. In particular in the service and in return, essential in indoor.
You could finally reach the semifinals of the Masters, right?
The way is still long. I have to face Novak (Djokovic) as of Tuesday, and this system is quite brutal in fact, because if I lose, everything will be open again …
This morning, did you find a channel to see what was going on in Perth for the Fed Cup France team?
I did not look, no. It was too early and I could not disturb my schedule (to laugh). But Kiki wrote the story. Win three points on a final, beat the world No. 1, it's fantastic. I am super happy. Nobody deserves it more than her. Kiki is now an absolute national heroine in France. She made history for the final Fed Cup final in this formula, but I'm not sure she's aware of it yet. In any case, we have not lost much today (smile).
Will she join you in London by the end of the Masters?
Oula, right now (it was 11pm in London when he was talking, so 7am in Australia), I think she is still celebrating in Australia (to laugh). I'm already going to let her land in Paris. We will see then. "
