Still, I wasn't able to serve 100 percent but the way I been serving was I didn't feel any pain so that's good. It's also good to win in straight sets, because I have to force my elbow a lot. So I have a treatment tomorrow again and hopefully it's gonna be fine for Wednesday." -- Carlos Moya on his elbow injury
