Kiefer is an aggressive player, he puts a lot of pressure on the other guy, especially on the return. He comes a lot to the net. So it's going to be a tough match, but it is great.

I like to play here. It's the first major of the year and I've done well in the past. I like the atmosphere here. The people who come and watch, all the players are really into it here.

I've played all the French (men), but never Paul-Henri. It's going to be a little bit strange, but you have to deal with it.

I mean, 'friend' is a big word, I think. No, I think I was a little bit disappointed in, you know, the way he throw the racquet, you know, on such a big point. So even if he was expecting to lose the point, I mean, that's not the way it is.

It's great to see many, many players ... from France, doing well here.

I'm not fit to play on Friday. But I hope to be fit to play on Sunday. This morning, I felt better, I was able to serve. That is why I'm still in the team.

I was a little bit surprised because I had started the year with two losses.
