In a press conference at the French Open, Nicolas Mahut had said: "I don't know if it was my last match in Roland, but if it were the case, I finished Roland Garros in a beautiful way.
I wanted to come out of the court by giving everything. I was able to do that during my three matches. Today there is some sadness because I felt that I was at the right tennis level. I rarely played at that level at Roland Garros before, and I was capable of doing something today. But my opponent was very good in the serve."
