“It feels actually good,” admits Corentin Moutet after qualifying for the spherical of 16 on the US Open.
This will probably be your first spherical of 16 in a Grand Slam, how do you are feeling?
It feels good. I had two third rounds on sophisticated matches. Dealing with Félix (Auger-Aliassime, US Open 2020), I missed my match. Towards Londero (Roland-Garros 2019), we all know the match (defeat in 5 units), it was powerful. It feels actually good to have managed to win and get away with it in the present day. Mainly, a Grand Slam is tremendous lengthy whenever you begin within the desk, so whenever you get to qualifying, it is even longer, it is three weeks to get to the tip. That is my finest consequence for the time being, I do not plan on something both. It is good.
What’s your best supply of satisfaction, what do you want about your recreation in the present day?
To inform the reality, I’m glad after I win a match. Right this moment, I’m no extra glad than traditional. I am simply completely happy to have gotten out of it, to have discovered the options to win the match. I used to be very tense, I did not play very effectively by the best way. I believe that is my first high quality: looking for options. Generally I am much less steady than some gamers, however every time, I am there to defend effectively, to hold on, run quick, run lengthy, discover options, consider in myself to attempt to win in opposition to anyone. There’s not an opponent in opposition to whom I enter the sector with out believing in myself. That is what I am pleased with and what I have been constructing for years.
Within the spherical of 16, it will likely be Casper Ruud, seeded n°5, an opponent you will have by no means met?
He’s an excellent participant, he made the ultimate at Roland-Garros. It’s tremendous stable full, it does all the pieces effectively. It will be an excellent match to make. I’ve by no means performed it, I do not actually know what to anticipate, however options, there’ll absolutely be some. To see if I handle to search out them, to use them.
