Being tough was the most important thing today. There were a lot of moments where it didn't look necessarily to be going my way. I just tried to stick around, tried to show in a way that I just wanted it badly, if not more. It paid off.
I'll play Roger Federer next on Wednesday, always a great challenge!
I did a lot of things well today. I was efficient on my serve, created a bunch of opportunities. I started getting better and better there. Maybe at the beginning I wasn't controlling the situation enough. But as the match went on, I felt like I was dictating more so from the baseline. He was coming up with some good serves in the important moments.
I did a lot of things well today against Struff. I have to be happy with just progressing through. Obviously I would have wished to have had more matches on grass leading into this tournament. I'm happy with the way I dealt with things. I didn't make the most of the tournaments before. Then at the beginning of the first set it felt like a déjà vu of two weeks ago. But I really stepped up and...

My coach, Richard Krajicek, and I have decided to part ways. This decision has been a mutual one. I would like to thank Richard for his help with my game, his dedication and his professionalism. I wish him all the best.

But I'll take it when I can have it. I have played a lot over the past weeks. I'm playing well. I'm happy with the way I was able to start today. I think I have made good progress in...

There are some pluses to take out of today's match and some things I definitely want to do better. Obviously, I was very competitive.
I felt a little bit sluggish to start. Sort of let him really into it, and you could see that he started believing after a while, and that's always a dangerous state. I managed to sort of weather the storm and hold it out throughout that match.
It's always good to start and to be as efficient as possible. I was able to break relatively early in all three sets and just sort of go about my business throughout the whole match. So I'm happy with that, and it gives me a little more freedom to spend more time working on my game tomorrow and playing hopefully even better on Wednesday. #TeamMilos
Into the semis in Lyon! I hope to keep playing better and better, that's the objective this week. But overall the main objective is to win and be efficient on court, which was a success today. Thanks for all the support #TeamMilos!
