Q.  Talk about the difficulty of dealing with the fact that most people here were rooting for the other guy and the importance of the match and the aura of all that.

JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA:  You know, I was in my match, I was focused.  I didn’t, you know, take care of it.  You know, I was in my match, so for me it was not really important today.

Q.  So how do you feel to go through to the semifinals?

Q.  I want to look forward to your quarterfinal against Philipp Kohlschreiber.  What sort of match are you expecting from him?

JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA:  The best match of his life, you know.  I think he never reach the semis, so of course he will play hard.  I expect to have a very, very tough match.

Q.  What’s in your mind?  I guess you’re very disappointed.

JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA:  Well, I’m disappointed.  I am disappointed.  But now it’s over.  Nothing I can do.  I can’t play the match again, so I’m eliminated.

It’s a bit of a shame because I was pretty close.  I’m not going to regret many things in that match.  I gave everything I had.  I fought as much as I could.

Unfortunately at the end I had no energy left in my legs.  That’s it.  That’s the way it is.  I’ll have to close that chapter and start practicing on grass.

I’ll try and remember this match and this loss so I have more confidence in tournaments like Wimbledon.  Because if I can hurt top players on clay, I can do worse on grass.

Q.  Last night, as the evening was falling, not knowing if you were able to finish the match or not, was it hard to concentrate in the fourth set and the fifth set, and how did you prepare yourself mentally for this morning after this interruption?

JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA:  Yeah, yesterday was tough.  It was dark at the end and tough to continue, so the umpire decide to play today.  I don’t know if it was great for me or not, but anyway, it was like that.

Today I came on the court with the good spirit.  You know, I had a good night.  I slept well.

This morning, you know, I was ready to play again.
