"I put a lot of pressure on my opponent and he made a lot of double errors. It was very important to me that there was a lot of Israeli crowd that pushed me. I came into this week with a lot of confidence, it's true there were losses in Davis, but I took the good things out of it and from game to game I feel like I'm getting better."
