Stan Wawrinka refused to give his thoughts on Novak Djokovic defending Justin Gimelstob in an interview. The Swiss player said: "Right now I am not in the mood to talk about that. Sorry." On how it feels to face a big server like Reilly Opelka, Wawrinka added: "At the end you have to always focus.
I have to always focus on what I'm doing on the court. Against those big server, you know you're not going to have a lot of chance. You know you need to be sharp, you need to be a little extra aggressive. You get under pressure a little bit more.
Yeah, I played them a few times. First time I was playing against him today. As I say, I had some chance in the fourth set. I felt that I was starting to play really well. I should have break him or at least take the lead. At the end he was there being more aggressive.
He deserved to win. "Like every player, you always want to go as far as you can in tournament. I think before my surgery I was really consistent, finishing top five a few years in a row, playing some big tournaments, going far there.
Again, now it's been a bit different. I'm really happy the way I'm playing. I'm not thinking about the full season, what I want to do every tournament, week after week. I'm just trying to go day by day, focusing on what I want to improve, what I want to achieve.
Hopefully I can keep playing well. I think I'm playing great tennis. Today it's a tough loss, that's for sure. But now it's just a tennis match. The season is really long. There is a lot of tennis to play. I'm excited for the rest of the year."
