It's just a matter of playing your best tennis when you get there, which I didn't necessarily do in the final there. But I'll definitely have learnt more from that than at Queen's.

It's obviously a shame, I think over the last couple of days it was kind of expected, it sounded like he was struggling in the matches that he played. It's always disappointing if someone like him pulls out of Wimbledon especially when he was the defending champion.

I enjoy watching him play. He's my favourite player to watch. The fans will all be disappointed. But he's got to do what's best for him.

To win your first event on grass is nice - I had never made a final on grass. Tim Henman was a great grass-court player but there are so few tournaments on it. It was probably his best surface but he never won one.

I've thought about serving for the title - but the closer you get to a Grand Slam the less you think about it. In the gym is the time I think about those things - to find a reason for putting in the hard work - and when you're going through it on the running track.

Sometimes you feel sorry for yourself, you are finding reasons for doing the training. When I get tired and out of breath I think, 'I'm doing this so I can last long enough in the fifth set of a Grand Slam' - focusing on the last point and hoping your opponent misses.

The grass court season has always been good fun for me.

The Queen's Club tournament has an unbelievable history and it's the perfect preparation for Wimbledon. Playing on grass presents a different sort of challenge to the rest of the season and it's a good marker for me to see where my game's at.

That's what I want to try to do. From the start of the tournament (French Open), I've obviously got a lot to gain and unless Federer wins the tournament, he's going to lose points. I could do it here at this tournament.
