Q. What do you take away from a game like that?

THANASI KOKKINAKIS: Yeah, tough match. My returning needs to get better. I'll take that away. I don't know. I think I just need to learn how to manage my time maybe a little bit better in between my first match and my second match. It was a new experience for me playing my first match. I just need to learn how to recover a little bit better, because I was feeling pretty sore and flat going into the match. So I need to work on that.

Q. What did you do between?

THANASI KOKKINAKIS: I don't know. I thought I did all the right things. I had like three ice baths; tried acupuncture for the first time to see if that would work. I felt flat coming into the match. It's tough. You need a lot of explosiveness against his serve. He kept me on my feet the whole time. I didn't quite make enough when it mattered.

Q. How do you feel? Mixture of delight and exhaustion, I'm sure.

THANASI KOKKINAKIS: Yeah, a bit of both. Physically I feel pretty good. A lot better than I did last year. Obviously it wasn't as hot. Played longer against maybe a more experienced opponents. Really happy with how I felt physically. Yeah, I was thrilled with that win. Best win of my career. Had one last week or two weeks ago in Brisbane. And followed it up with a more important win today. I'm happy with how I played today.



Q. Was there a moment early in the fourth set when you thought it was going to be too hard?

THANASI KOKKINAKIS: A little bit. I lost my form. I played a really good second set and got on top of him. I knew early games in the third set were important. I didn't get them and then he ran away with that set. Again, early games in these matches are huge. But I didn't do a good job of that. So he was up in the fourth I think 2-Love, but I kept making him play balls. He gave me a couple balls I think when I needed them. That gave me a spark again, and the crowd was unbelievable the whole night. They got me through again.
