Aljaz Bedene speaks to the media after his 4-6, 7-6(4), 7-6(4), 6-4 win against Cameron Norrie

Q. That was a close match. You must be delighted to come through it?
ALJAZ BEDENE: Yeah. I mean, to be fair, it didn't start well. Conditions were a little bit tricky. Trickier than previous days. It was windy. Sun was, I mean, terrible from the side, and didn't feel comfortable at all, really. Wasn't hitting the ball well. But I did fight, so that's important.

You know, I lost so many matches now in a row, which was -- it's not usual for me. Usually I win one at least. Obviously I was playing Federer and lost again. Two first-round matches and first round in Roland Garros.

So I really wanted to win this one, and it was a good fight from my side. That was important today.
