Serbian tennis star Filip Krajinovic didn't back down while describing how he felt after losing to wildcard Dominik Koepfer in the Wimbledon first round on Tuesday. World No. 130 Koepfer surprised 2017 Paris Masters runner-up Krajinovic 6-3 4-6 7-6 (9) 6-1 to clinch his maiden Wimbledon win in his maiden appearance at The Championships.
52nd-ranked Krajinovic paid the price for blowing a break in the third set -- and later a set point in the tie-break -- as the 25-year-old German won a tight third set before dominating the fourth set. Speaking to Sasa Ozmo of Sport Klub after the match, Krajinovic said that grass wasn't his priority but still didn't expect to lose against Koepfer.
Krajinovic opted not to play any ATP grass-court events before Wimbledon as he only played two matches at The Boodles exhibition last week. Krajinovic felt "disappointed" and "mad" on himself after losing to Koepfer as he insisted that he should have taken the advantage of a good draw.
The 27-year-old also added that he trained seven days in London before admitting resting following Roland Garros wasn't a good decision.
