“I had moments where I was great, I felt like I was reading his serve. And then other moments where I don’t know where the hell I was moving to. …

(An average performance) doesn’t come as a surprise – those happen. Every second game is an average performance, I believe. Then you have moments in the match where you rise to the occasion, you play very well. But I wouldn’t necessarily say I’ve been playing like incredible. I’ve been playing well.

“But just today when I needed it, I couldn’t get up, and I think that’s why it’s an average performance and not a good one. So if I would have won in straight sets, then it could have been all right because I would have had a great first set, (and) the second set was whatever it was.

“So no, I didn’t see it coming. From that standpoint, I felt great in practice, good in the warmup. I’m feeling the ball well. Even now losing, I still felt like the feeling is there. It was just happened to be that today wasn’t the day.”
