THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.
Q. Your thoughts on this match. It ended up the final set pretty straightforward, but tight before that. Also if you could look ahead to playing Andy in the next round who you’ve not beaten before.
ALEXANDER ZVEREV: Yeah, I mean, the match wasn’t the best level ever from me, but I won. I think the third set was starting to be pretty decent from me. I started to feel the ball a lot better.
Then yeah, I mean, Andy right now is playing great tennis again. I’m looking forward to that match.
Q. With the win you’ve now qualified again for the ATP Finals. How important is that to you, and what do you expect as the tournament moves to Turin?
ALEXANDER ZVEREV: I mean, first time in Turin. I’ve been to London four times before. London is obviously very special to me because I won there, as well. I think the stadium is incredible, one of the most special events that we had.
But I also love playing in Italy. I had great success in Italy. I won my first Masters in Rome. I’m looking forward to being there. I’m looking forward to playing in front of the Italian fans. It’s going to be a great week.
Q. What do you do this time around when you come up against Andy? The players are saying the courts are slow, but the flight of the ball is quick.
ALEXANDER ZVEREV: I mean, look, the conditions are not ideal for me I would say. I’ve never done extremely well here. I’m going to try my best at the end of the day.
Andy is playing great again. He’s won two great matches. I think today was very high level from him. I’m looking forward to playing him. I mean, he’s the only one out of the big four I haven’t beaten yet. I hope I can change that after tomorrow, then we’ll see how it goes.
