Sergiy Stakhovsky, who stunned Roger Federer at Wimbledon but lost his follow up match to Jurgen Melzer, admits he did too much media after the win.
 
“It was quite hard for me because yesterday was a busy day,” he said. “Everybody wanted to chat. Everybody wanted a piece. It just takes some time and energy.”
 
Stakhovsky also described his play against Melzer as, “Stupid. It would be I think the exact word of showing how I should not play Jurgen.”
