Stan Wawrinka lost to Marius Copil in the first round at the Sofia Open in three sets, and in his post-match press conference, the Swiss player said: "I think it was a really tough match. I played really well in the first set.
In the second set, I had some chances. He was a little bit better than in the beginning. I made a few mistakes and the same in the third. He played well. Sometimes you lose tough matches. You need to keep practicing out, you need to keep fighting.
Tonight it was not my night. Of course, I am sad with the result, but I need to keep on walking”. Wawrinka enjoyed his experience in Sofia where he made his first appearance in 2017 reaching the semi-finals. “It was amazing atmosphere again.
For sure I will come back. I had a lot of support here, there were really nice people. Thank for the support. It was the same last year. I can come back and play better." Copil said: "It is a great win, but I did not start the match well.
Had some problems with my serve. But I won somehow the tiebreak and was lucky to make a break in the third. And had a big serve on match point. I have great expectations because I want to win every match. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, but I hate to lose.
Last year I served very well here in Sofia, and hope I keep on doing it." ALSO READ: Djokovic would beat Roger Federer in Australian Open final - Evert
