„I´m very sorry, that I couldn´t play this match until the end, but it really wasn´t possible. In the third game I get very strong cramps and I couldn´t even rise from the ground. It was a hard match and it was very wet outside what plays also its role. I´m very disappointed and sad, because I was the better player, although Medinas achievement was also very good.
