Jeremy Chardy joked about his doubles partner Fabrice Martin. They reached the French Open and Chardy said: "Fabrice loves me more than my wife does", he joked. Analyzing their loss in the final, Chardy added: "When you lose, you often have regrets.
But we started the match very badly. It's not the right way to start a final. They built confidence in that, and we didn't. It's the only regret we can have regarding the match. And they played very well. Unfortunately, we didn't play our best match today, but we hate losing.
So tonight we are sad as each time we lose. We played excellent matches during the entire fortnight. It's our first Grand Slam finals, so that's the positive side of it. It gives us a sour taste in our mouth and the desire to get the trophy next time."
Martin was asked if pressure played a role: "The pressure, we felt it at the beginning of the match, indeed. But afterwards, we said, Whatever happens, we will play the match together, be it positive or negative. And in the second set, we were able to show our good tennis, but it was complicated because it was the first time we lost our serve.
Especially at the beginning of the match, we were very strong in our serves, and we were down 6-2, 4-0, double break right from the beginning of the match. So it was a bit bothering, especially in the finals. It was difficult to be confident.
We struggled with the means we had. We have no regrets. We played to our maximum tennis, but of course, we could have dreamt a better end."
