It was after Wimbledon I pushed on. I just learnt a lot from the loss to Rafa. I realised I needed to get fitter and stronger. I went away and worked on it.
When we play for small forfeits I lose the games more, because they don't concentrate as much. It doesn't bother me like when we play for push-ups and you have to kiss the other guy's toes. Like I'll lose them. But if it's stuff like a cricket bat or you have to get lunch for everyone and stuff, I concentrate a bit harder.
I don't think I played that passive. I think I hit a lot of winners. You know, my game style against him is not always to go on the court and try and blast winners all the time.
When I first started reading Tintin, I never thought of him as Belgian: everything looked so British, I assumed it must have been written by an Englishman or Scotsman! Later on, as I travelled, I discovered that Tintin exists in many different languages. I think it's really great that readers from as far afield as Asia find The Black Island interesting.
As a Scotsman, my first Tintin book was of course The Black Island, my favourite Tintin adventure since then!
It goes down to the percentage of games.. The people that go through are the ones that deserve to.
You know, a win's a win. Yeah, I obviously would have liked to have finished it off the right way.
Our men's side needs to get way, way better.
I need to make a decision of what's best, not only just for the team but also my own career as well.
I can understand to a certain extent that everyone would like me to play in the Davis Cup because obviously we've got a better chance of winning.
After Indian Wells I sat down with my coaches and spoke about making sure my priority was to peak for the Grand Slams but I can still play great tennis in the Masters Series and try to win every match I play in. That's what I need to be focused on and that's what we talked about together after Indian Wells. I was nervous before I played against Kohlschreiber and I was just rubbish. You gear towards each Grand Slam. They are the four peaks of the year where you want to be playing your best tennis and I achieved that in Australia. Since then it's not been particularly good but a lot can change from week to week. I went from playing some of the best tennis of my life in Australia to playing some really bad tennis in the space of a few weeks and it can change. I just need to keep working.
The only disappointing thing was I wasn't able to create more break point opportunities, as normally that's one of the best points of my game. This week I felt so much better than I did in Monte Carlo. This tournament is a step in the right direction compared with the last couple of weeks, which were going the wrong way. I'm disappointed to lose but I was a lot happier with the way I hit the ball.
In terms of the way I was striking the ball it was a different level to the last two tournaments, way, way better. I just need to serve and return better, which are two basic things you tend to do better the more matches you play. I didn't do the basics as well as I would have liked.
