Q. How bad is the ankle? How proud are you of fighting through it?

GAEL MONFILS: I don’t know. I going to find out in a couple minutes. I was happy that I fought no matter what. As I say, I felt good this week, tried to give my best.

I think I showed today also that I was a fighter. Now I hope is not that bad. Honestly, I don’t know. I need to relax and see in two hours if I’ll be fine to play another match. The match is going to be a good one. I don’t know if my body is ready yet, but I find out.

Q. Roberto is such a fighter, a wall. It was going to be physically demanding against him.

GAEL MONFILS: Yeah, he’s not missing. He’s very accurate. Yeah, you need to step up and be patient, yeah, be very aggressive.
