Q. Were you feeling at all unwell or unfit today?

RAFAEL NADAL: No. I am feeling okay. Just was not my day. I didn't play with the right intensity, with the right rhythm, and the opponent played better than me. In sport, when you are going to play against an opponent, was a day that the opponent played better than me.

Q. Do you think it's also the fact that you haven't played such a player for a while, the whole process of coming back?

RAFAEL NADAL: Well, is probably not the day to talk about that. We talked enough about that before the tournament and almost every day, so is a day that I just can congratulate my opponent, accept that. Is obvious that I needed something more to be more competitive, as I did in the third. The third was the right set, the right game that I have to play. But is obvious that before I didn't play with the right confidence, with the right intensity, losing court, playing very short. I make him play very easy. So you cannot expect to win matches in quarterfinals of Grand Slam helping the opponent to play well. That's what I did. The first two sets, the beginning -- since the beginning of the third, I played with more character, more the way that I have to play to have chances to keep being -- to be where I want to be, to be where I have been for the last lot of years. I don't know how many. So that's it. Just will keep working hard on the things that I have to do. As I said when I arrived here, the process always is not easy. When you have injuries, are difficult the comebacks. There are so many examples around the world of sport that have been tough to be back. For me, I'm not an exception on that, no? I have to take the positive things. Without being at my top level of tennis I was able to be here in quarterfinals. Is not a bad result at all for me arriving here the way I arrived: only with one match, only with five matches in seven months. So taking the positive part, that's the thing that I have to take. That's just the beginning of the season, and I want to keep having chances to compete well against everybody. I need to keep working the way that I am doing for be ready for the next. The season is long, I know. Beginnings are tough. I need to be ready to accept all the situations that's going to happen or happened and try to be strong, accepting everything, and working hard to be back the way that I want to be. When I say 'be back,' I don't mean win or lose, I mean have the feeling on court that when you are there you feel confident, you feel you can compete against everybody with equal conditions.

Andy Murray Betting Odds

Q. As a man who likes his football, was that the perfect away performance?

ANDY MURRAY: Yeah, I mean, I didn't go into it obviously thinking like that. I was, yeah, just trying to win against Nick, which was tough 'cause he has an exceptional serve and makes it very difficult for you when he's serving. And, like I said on the court afterwards, it was very tricky conditions, as well. So I was quite happy with the way I handled everything tonight.

Q. What was the wind doing out there? Was it swirling?

ANDY MURRAY: No. The end where we walk out onto the court was a really strong breeze. When you were at that end you were playing with the wind, so it was tricky 'cause it was very strong breeze. When you're down the far end of the court you had to do a lot more defending. If you tried to play with any sort of height the ball was dropping short. It was very easy for me or him to attack. So, yeah, I tried to just keep the ball low from that end, used a lot of slice, and played pretty flat. So it was tough for him and it worked.

Tomas Berdych Betting Odds

Q. Nobody can beat Tomas Berdych 18 times in a row?

TOMAS BERDYCH: Well, no (smiling). I heard that already. I did, so...

Q. How was it? What were your feelings when you were playing? Did you expect him to come back? You thought it was in your hands?

TOMAS BERDYCH: No, I mean, I start pretty well. I start with the plan that I set up before the match, and then it turns that it was the right one. I was able to keep going with the same plan all the way through the match. Even though that it was the first two sets kind of looks easy, you know, but you're playing Rafa and you know what kind of opponent he is and you have to be ready for anything. So, you know, that's why I keep myself really focused and was keep going all the way till the end and trying to make my chances. Even though he just changed a couple of things - he gets better in the third set - but still I was able to finish it and close it up in three sets.

Q. What did he change?

Q. Tough night. How did you see it?

NICK KYRGIOS: Yeah, it was a really good experience. That was my first Aussie Open Grand Slam match playing on Rod Laver, so that was really cool. But he was way too good for me tonight. There are some things I can take from that match and get better at. Yeah, he was just way too good for me.

Q. How do you like his chances?

NICK KYRGIOS: Yeah, I said to him at the net, This is your time; go get him. I think he's got a really good chance of winning the whole thing.

Q. What did he say to you?

NICK KYRGIOS: Good tournament. Good luck for the rest of the year. We've got a pretty good relationship. We've talked about it on Twitter. He's been a guy that's always been supporting me, so...
