If my legs start going at all, the crowd will be my legs for a little while.

Those guys carried me through. I had a lot of tough three-set matches this week, and they were my legs in those third sets.

Once I got that first break (in the third set), having the sense it was almost over was great. Having that crowd to front run is great.

He's top 20 in the world for a reason.

At the beginning of the year, I probably wouldn't have won a match like this.

This couldn't have been better preparation for that match, ... He (Lopez) has one of if not the best lefty serves out there. If he doesn't, Rusedski probably does. I am looking at the two best lefty serves back to back and getting a win against one could correlate to getting a win (against) another.

It's just amazing, ... I really couldn't have dreamed it to be any better at the beginning of the week.

Still seems like a dream come true. Never seemed possible at the beginning of this week. It couldn't have been more perfect to do it in front of my friends and family. I know there's going to be a little bit of celebrating in Fairfield.
