Q.  Does this one, now that it’s over, feel any different than the other ones?  How did it feel inside?

ANDY MURRAY:  Well, yeah, it’s tough.  Every one has been different ways.  You know, today’s pretty hard because, you know, you’re playing in front of, you know, a crowd like that.  You’re playing in front of ‑‑ you know, your family’s there, as well, like your whole family has come to watch.

So, yeah, it’s tough.

Q.  Set and a break down obviously not a great situation.  What were you thinking then?

ANDY MURRAY:  Well, I knew it’s a lot harder to hold serve from the near end of the court.  I think both times when he served for it, he was serving at that end.

Yeah, just tried to make him play some balls, you know, tried to dictate more of the points.  That was it.

Q.  How tough was that with the conditions and all the delays?

ANDY MURRAY:  Yeah, it’s tough.  You know, I mean, obviously in matches you kind of can build momentum and build leads, and then when you stop, once you come back out again, you feel like you’re starting off from square one.

But I did well today.  He started the third set well.  He had a few chances.  I came up with some big serves.  I served very well in the third set especially.

But, yeah, it’s never easy.  There were, what, three, four, three stops or something.  It’s not easy.

Q. One of your most memorable Wimbledon matches?

ANDY MURRAY:  Yeah, it was.  Yeah, it was tough obviously for both of us.  You know, the conditions are tricky the first couple of sets.  It was very windy.

Obviously the roof, I think the quality of tennis improved under the roof.  I was under the impression I was stopping at 11:00 regardless of what the score was.  Even if it was in the middle of a game.

But, yeah, obviously glad that I managed to get the finish.  And, you know, the atmosphere at the end was excellent.

A. MURRAY/I. Karlovic 7‑5, 6‑7, 6‑2, 7‑6

Q.  Just the match you could try and get through, I guess, against a guy like that.

ANDY MURRAY:  Yeah.  Any match you just want to try to find a way to win.  It’s not always about how you play.

But today, yeah, I mean, you can’t sort of judge necessarily how well you struck the ball or any stroke in particular.  But you need to show good patience, mental strength.  I think I did a good job of that today ’cause, you know, got off to a bad start of 40‑Love down, and then I broke straightaway, straight back.

Then after losing that tight second set, to get that break at the beginning of the third set was important as well.  So I did a good job.

Q.  What is the gesture you did in celebration?

ANDY MURRAY:  Well, it’s something for me and the guys that I work with.  I don’t really want to go into too much detail because I’ll end up getting asked about it every single day.

Q.  How do you feel about your form going in?

ANDY MURRAY:  We’ll see when the tournament starts.  The match at Queen’s is the one I would look at.  It was a close match that I lost there.  The exhibition matches, the result is completely irrelevant.

Practice has been good, though.  I’ve trained well.  Each day felt a bit better on the grass.  Hopefully feel good on Tuesday.

D. FERRER/A. Murray 6‑4, 6‑7, 6‑3, 6‑2

 

ANDY MURRAY

 

 

Q.  You said you thought he was going to be hard to break down on clay.  It felt like you had to keep going for more and more to try to do that.  Is that how it felt to you?

ANDY MURRAY:  No, I think, I mean, I thought I played some good tennis tonight.  I just didn’t convert.  I mean, I had a lot of chances in the last couple of sets on his serve and I lost a lot of really long games on my serve, which didn’t help.

Against him, you know, he is so solid, so consistent, you know, that if you’re not converting your opportunities, it turns to many long games and then the pressure can build on your serve.

He obviously broke me a lot times the last couple of sets.  I had chances to break him and didn’t convert them like he did.

A. MURRAY/R. Gasquet 1‑6, 6‑4, 6‑1, 6‑2

 

ANDY MURRAY

 

Q.  You said you’d feed off the crowd’s energy, and you certainly rose to the challenge, by the looks of it.

ANDY MURRAY:  Yeah, I think that was always going to be important today.  He obviously started the match well, but, yeah, I started to use the energy from the crowd in a positive way and obviously turned it around and played very well the last few sets.
