Back to the US Open
“Looks like he’s better than ever. I’m more than happy to be in New York. I enjoyed those few days of training, they were good days of preparation.
Mark and his father
“There is a good balance between them. My father has a lot of respect for him, he was the one who brought him into the team. It was not my decision. I get on pretty well with him too. From the first moment, I knew it was going to work.
Laver Cup with Roger Federer
“It’s something legendary. The composition of the team is a joke. It’s an honor to be part of it. I don’t know how Roger is doing at the moment, but I’m happy to see him back on the track. It’s a privilege to have him in the team. I learned a lot from previous editions. You share something very important with them during these three days. We have the opportunity to connect and share great ideas on and off the court, to be part of something extraordinary in tennis.”
The change from coaching
“Nothing changes. He was always there for everyone. My coach was not as discreet as others, but it always happened. I received quite a few punishments for coaching which I consider unfair “Now that it’s legal, I’m glad I don’t have to deal with chair umpires who are so strict and want to ruin the game. Now that it’s legal, the players will focus more on the game.”
Can it be your time?
“I did not expect to reach the final in Cincinnati. Here I find the hottest and most humid conditions. Everyone is fighting for the trophy, including me. My physical condition will be very important, I have to start the tournament strong”.
