beatCarlos, what did you do differently to get the win tonight? I said I need to play 11 out of 10. I
played12 out of 10 except the third set, so that's the only way he is, I don't know if he's still 20 or 21, but he's very young and already has two Grand Slams. .

I have to do a little better. I served some, let's say some break points in one. Everything was very crucial and then this super long game that I managed to get to. scores some amazing points to stay in the game and then he, who is, maybe we don't see him do this often, started to falter a little bit, so, yeah, amazing, well, now it's going to be a rematch of your ending. Two years ago against Novak Djokovic, what is the challenge he is playing now? He will be number one next week. The challenge is that you play against a guy who won all 23 Grand Slams so I only have one so I need to do it when I beat him here I managed to play better than me and I need to do it again there is no other way okay and finally the crowd loves the crowd whether they are for you or against you what does it mean to you when you finally finish this match well first of all i have to be honest the crowd was amazing today absolutely absolutely amazing and i mean that , we had some crazy points and I felt like let's call it love on both sides and, uh, the only thing is probably a thousand Spaniards uh at 5'3 they started screaming between the first and second serve that's not so nice but I guess they were desperate so I'm happy that it didn't help them now they can go to sleep now I have one more what happens for you Think about the first match point, second serve, when do you decide?
I'm going to look for another first service. The thing is I did a quick second second serve, all with his forehand, so I thought: I think he's going to wait for this or a kicker so if I do this one and put it in I don't think he'll be ready and also on my first serve I felt like I did a good serve but the draw was not there, that's why I missed the only problem that in the second I also shot very badly, that's why I made the double fault and then I refer to the great amount of the last game, I think I saved four or five points At the break we were both tight, but I managed to do it.
I'm very happy. well it was a great performance congratulations best of luck in the final thank you so much guys everyone Danielle Meadowhead thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming. Sports and premium content, subscribe to ESPN Plus.
