“I tried to fight with my weapons of the day”

Ce morning I didn’t feel good, I had some problems. With the fatigue, it was difficult. But that doesn’t take away from Daniil’s victory, he played good tennis, with a lot of intelligence. I didn’t want to leave the court, but the physio told me to take some time because I didn’t look fit enough to continue playing. I was struggling physically. It was a difficult moment. I tried to fight with my weapons of the day. Yes, I was sick. I felt that last night. I couldn’t sleep as much as I wanted. These things can happen, it’s just unfortunate. I didn’t throw up but I didn’t feel good. I was dizzy, especially when I left the court, that was the worst moment. When I came back, I gave it my all. I’m disappointed with the third set where I had set points that I didn’t convert. In the fourth, I raised my level of play. And in the fifth, a bad service game decided the match.
