“I didn’t want it to end like this…”

“This point was unlosable, except that I was playing against Alcaraz so he put it back, and that will teach me” reacted Ugo Humbert after the match, he who lost the second set on a lapse when he could have easily saved it. “You have to play matches against the very best to get used to it and understand that you have to stay focused until the last ball to finish the job. At that point, I cursed myself.”

“Finally, in the third set, I was doing well and I did a lot of good things. I didn’t want it to end like that… 6-3, 6-4 and another break in the third. I believed in it until the last point. I gave it my all. At certain moments, I played fantastic tennis and I caused him a lot of problems. It came down to very little. Well done to him. It shows that I’m making progress.” shared the Frenchman from a general point of view. He reached the round of 16 of a Grand Slam for the second time in his career.
