Quotes from the news wire:
I wanted to do a big effort tonight. I fought until the last ball and had many opportunities, but it's hard to win matches when you can't move at 100 percent, the doctors say I need time if I want to be 100 percent, but I don't want to be home watching the tournaments on TV. I've done that before and it was really bad for me.
Hopefully after my third surgery, the problem is almost fixed and I am here, playing tennis again, i'm still confident in my game and still looking forward to playing with the top guys in the same condition, not like (Indian Wells), when I couldn't hit my backhand at 100 per cent. Maybe in the future I will get that chance.
I’m not going drop my arms or surrender because of an injury. If my hand responds well, I’ll come back as soon as possible but that depends exclusively on my hand, it will decide my return, i’m in full recovery, I’m going faster than the time frame the doctor set for me as a goal and that has me enthused and that’s why I believe my return will be very soon.
