In the press conference after the match, the Serb made fun of his many falls on the London lawns: "It seems to me that I have forged a great bond with Wimbledon grass. I think I've never crashed as many times as in my first two games here, but it doesn't matter, it was very good.

I think I pulled off an almost flawless performance. " Tim Henman has never won a Grand Slam title in his long career, despite having reached the semifinals a total of six times at the Major level. The former world number 4 is widely regarded as one of the best British tennis players of all ages, having lifted 11 trophies on the ATP circuit and distinguished himself for his elegant and purposeful playing style.

About the Big Three, he said: "It is very easy in sport to quantify an athlete's caliber just on the basis of wins and losses. Tennis is an interesting sport from this point of view, because even if you are number 1 in the world, you still lose a series of matches during the season.

However Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are nearing the end of their respective careers." Roger Federer praises and comforts Serena Williams, after the withdrawal of the American champion from the first round of Wimbledon for a leg injury: "Serena Williams? I just heard what happened, I'm sorry and I can't believe it, it's really terrible."

Ryan Harrison lashes out hard against the ATP and in favor of the PTPA: "People have to understand that it's not personal. It's not about choosing whether your favorite player is Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray The system is now on its way to rupture.

Unfortunately it is a system that has proved incapable of being successful and that has left us behind compared to other sports. Almost all other disciplines have evolved to become more marketable, while tennis has failed. "
