Are you now looking forward to your favorite tournaments on hard courts?
"I’m already thinking about them. Not that the grass courts would be my least popular surface, but I never played really well here. On hard courts I simply feel the best in general. My favorite tournaments are ahead of me. I’m really looking forward to playing there and I believe I’ll play well. My tennis in general has been improving. I had a few not so good tournaments, but I’ve turned a few matches around lately, which is good for my confidence. It’s been a strange year so far, so we’ll see what’s going to come.." .
Does the American environment suit you?
"Definitely, I like warm weather. The conditions for tennis are therefore faster there, which suits me. I like the U.S. Open, New York City, it’s an incredible change from the other tournaments. Plus I have good memories of the event."
