I mean, it’s a really big deal.
For me, it’s my first semifinal. To beat Andy, to have it be at Wimbledon,
was even a little more special. Just it was an incredible match.
I’m just so happy right now. Yeah, it was similar. I mean, I was
probably a little more fired up today, especially in the fourth and fifth sets.
You know, there’s a little more on the line. It was similar to last year, honestly.
But this year just feels a little better than last year. Q: Obviously not one of the top four players,
so sometimes people are like, Who is this face, even though you’re not new.
If somebody said who is Sam Querrey to you,
how would you describe yourself? I’m ranked 26, pretty good grass court player.
That’s about it. Q: That’s it? Yeah, I don’t know. I mean, last year definitely kind of
gave me a new boost that I could do it. But there have been
times in my career where I definitely thought, if I had to bet, am I going to make a
semi, I probably would have gone no. Now that I made the quarters last year,
and semis here, I’m feeling confident. I think I can go even a little further. Q: How does it feel to just dash the
hopes of an entire nation? He’s won the tournament before.
Like, it’s not — it would be one thing if they hadn’t
had a champion in 80 years and he lost. But I don’t feel like I just ruined the
hopes of every British person out there. Everyone needs to take a little chill pill. It’s fine. before last year, having never
made the quarters of a slam, was kind of a bummer. I felt like
I was a good enough player to have that, I guess, piece checked off.
Now to do it back-to-back years, make a semi, it’s extra toppings on top of the career.
It feels great. Hopefully there will be a little more.
