I’m lucky to be in the situation where I’m playing with all these guys that I grew up seeing. “

“Every time there was a Roger-Rafa final at a Grand Slam event, those were probably the games I saw the most repeated, non-stop. Those are the games that gave me hunger and drive to achieve my dreams as a tennis player and try to keep improving to be able to one day be in that situation. “
