I didn't get that fired up for the match. I was flat. I was going to be here practising anyway, so I had hoped to get a few matches. But my priority is to train for Rome and Hamburg. I wanted to continue from last week, but (playing here) is not the be-all and end-all.I find it interesting how Andy dismisses this loss by saying "I was going to be practising here anyway" and "[Rome] and Hamburg are the most important [tournaments] going into the French Open" as if this loss shouldn't really count. Plus, what does he mean the major ballers weren't in Monte Carlo last week? They were all surely there and it only took one to embarrass him 6-0, 6-4: Nole.
I've now got four or five days to get ready for Rome. It and Hamburg are the most important ones going into the French Open. All of the major players should be there, which was not the case last week.
