Q. You put the tie on just for us?
JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA: And for you and also for me. I'm happy I played my first match. This is my first victory here. I celebrate this victory like this.
Q. So the idea of the tie, where does it come from?
JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA: In other sports when you come to a press conference, you have to respect, to comply with a dress code, so I thought that in tennis, too, we could show we have certain ethics. I believe it's important. We have beautiful tournaments, and we should show a bit of respect.
Q. Are you going to wear a tuxedo in the quarterfinal or in the final?
JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA: Yes, I wanted to come with a tuxedo in the beginning, but my equipment provider didn't really want to. Now I found a solution.
Q. Are you going to wear a butterfly tie?
JO‑WILFRIED TSONGA: If I win, I'll wear whatever you want, but not a string.
Well shit, if you're not going to wear a g-string why the hell am I rooting for you?
Lose, Frenchie. Lose.
