Interview with Philipp Kohlschreiber

after his loss against Roger Federer

You obviously had chances in the third set tiebreak. What do you think made the difference and how tough is it starting against Roger?
Philipp Kohlschreiber: Of course, it’s not a nice draw but you have to take it as it comes. I had a plan how to play Roger. I mentioned before that his first grass court match could be a little bit tricky. I had my chances but I think in the end we both played at a very good level, in the crucial moments, he made the better decisions this time. Of course, it’s sad or tough to lose a match like this.
How was the grass out there? He fell three times at least, you fell later in the tiebreak, too?
Philipp Kohlschreiber: Overall, I have to say I was very pleased with the court. It’s like kind of indoor facility where the grass is a little bit more slippery. But I also see many people sliding at Wimbledon . So, I think I moved well on the court. Obviously, it’s always tough if you’re on the wrong side of your movement and it’s tough to adjust.
