Personal Quotes (53)

When you have beaten guys a few times, you don't want them to think they know how you are going to play them. You have to try and find different ways of beating them. You have to do things they don't expect sometimes, put something unpredictable into your game.
When a lot of things are going the wrong way for a country, for a people, when you can't really think of anything worse than a war, you always try to take life on the brighter side and that's how I grew up with my parents.
People say to me, 'You don't seem that interested in interviews.' Well, you know, I'm not, often. I'm not going to talk tactics with the press, so you are left with talking about how you are feeling; for me, it is not the most interesting thing to be doing.
I've been asked a lot lately if tennis is clean or not. I don't know any more how you judge whether a sport is clean. If one in 100 players is doping, in my eyes that isn't a clean sport.

One of the things I would have loved to have had was a family that worked better together, although I love my mother and father to bits.
Obviously you try to keep as much of your private life as private as you can.
Normally I sleep for 9, 10 hours a night.
My fitness trainer's English, my physio's English, some of my friends are English. I don't have a problem with English people at all.
Like most guys, I've always liked watches. I can always check the time on my phone, but having a watch is so much better.
It's easy to start over-thinking things and over-analysing things.
In tennis, it is not the opponent you fear, it is the failure itself, knowing how near you were but just out of reach.

Boxing, mixed martial arts and tennis are the hardest sports to train for.

I might look more stressed out than some of the other guys, but I don't mind people thinking that. That way, when they meet me, they are pleasantly surprised. I'm probably in a better position than if I was always laughing and joking. Hopefully people will judge me when I actually speak to them.
