J. FERRERO def. S. Querrey 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4
Q. I thought you'd forgotten how to play grass court tennis there for a set.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Not really, but I was not playing for a couple of weeks because I was injured, so at the beginning I couldn't get a lot of rhythm.
He plays very fast all the time with his serve and also with his forehand. You know, I was trying all the time, and since the second set I think I played a good match.
Q. With the way he hits the ball, he strikes very early. It must be very difficult to get a long rally to get some rhythm into the match.
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Well, yeah, of course. But the big worry to me was try to move well on the court because of my injury in the last weeks. At the beginning I was a little bit slower than after.
It wasn't the strokes or the rallies, I think. The best word for me was try to move well and try to hit the ball well.
Q. What's his future, do you think?
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: Who?
Q. Sam Querrey
JUAN CARLOS FERRERO: I don't know. I think he has to learn like everybody, and I think he has good potential to play good. He has a very good serve, good forehand.
I think he can play really good in all surface, like he did. Maybe in the clay courts season he play good.
