Q: Richard, what a wonderful win! After a difficult start to the year, you must be so pleased?
RG: Yeah, it was wonderful for me today, because – I am so happy – because Haas is a great player and we are leading 2-0 against Germany in Halle. It’s incredible for Team France.
Q: There were obviously some difficult moments there…how easy was it for you to keep your concentration when the crowd was getting involved?
RG: It was a fabulous crowd. It was difficult for me with the crowd, but I have a lot of support for me. I have Guy in the chair. I have my friends in the French players, so it was wonderful for me.
Q: After losing the first set 6-1, you hardly did anything wrong, what made the difference?
RG: It was a tough match for me. I was so like that – it was really difficult, but after I have a lot of concentration. Guy helped me a lot so, I won 6-4 and after it was easier for me.
