Tennis Sharapova Betting Odds

Q. In the tiebreak in the third set, did you feel more aggressive in your game?

KEI NISHIKORI: Yeah, I start feel more comfortable in the third set, especially after I found out couple points that, you know, I could go little more aggressive than first and second set. I was mixing up serve and volleys. My serve was much better than first couple sets because I was making more first serve. I was struggling my serve. That's why I couldn't get good rhythm first and second set. Yeah, tiebreaker was really close. If I could get that one, might change the whole thing. But, you know, he was serving really well until end of the set. So, you know, I think I have to give him credit. Yeah, he obviously played really aggressive and played great tennis. Think obviously play wasn't 100%. But I didn't play really bad. So, yeah, congrats to him.

Q. Looking back, is there anything you would have done differently?

KEI NISHIKORI: Well, for sure that my serve could be, you know, much better. I don't know. He was playing good, especially his serve. I couldn't do anything. I got one break. That was kind of lucky. He was missing a lot that game. Well, you know, third set I was playing more comfortable. Yeah, like I said, the tiebreak was the really key for the game.
