N. MAHUT/F. Gonzalez
7‑5, 4‑6, 7‑6

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Can you describe what you felt out there at the last point?
FERNANDO GONZÁLEZ: Many things. I was really tired in the end, and I said I don't want to finish with a double fault, but it was. I was tired.
But, I mean, after that, he just dictate. The atmosphere was great. I save a couple of match points before, and I felt that it's gonna be the end, you know, and then I have the chance to keep playing. I have my chances.
But Nicolas played better in the important moments, and I was a little bit tired at the end.

Q. What went into the decision to decide to retire here? Just the hip?
FERNANDO GONZÁLEZ: To retire or retire in Miami?

Gonzalez loses in Miami, plays last match of career

Fernando Gonzalez was beaten by Nicolas Mahut 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (3) in his first round match at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami.

Gonzales, who played his last tennis match as a professional player, says he would like to be remembered as someone who gave “100 percent every single time when he went to the court. And, of course, I think is much better to remember as a person than as a tennis player.”

The Chilean reached the 2007 Australian Open final, won 11 career singles titles, the 2004 Olympic gold medal in doubles and bronze medal in singles, along with a silver in singles in 2008.
