R1: Simon 3-1 Ben

[5] Simon Rösner (GER) 3-1 Ben Coleman (ENG) 12-10, 4-11, 11-2, 11-2 (54m)


I think I played well overall, I had a bit of an edgy start in the first two games, but then my body language went up and I was more into the game from the third onward and I’m really happy to get through that one. I just tried to focus on my game more, I was going for shots more.

I was playing within myself in the first two games, I wasn’t really playing my own game and I think that’s why I was struggling in the first two.

Once I stepped up the court that made a big difference.

I just think from match to match. Every opponent is different, every opponent is good these days, so you have to be focused from the first game. You can lose games quickly as well like I did in the second game, and I think it’s important to be right there and concentrate from match to match rather than thinking too far ahead.
