The first time I picked up a racket. I was four or five and I practiced with my father. I was on the tennis courts every day and I played with the clay, so I was always orange.
I am trying not to expect too much and just taking my time, doing everything I can.
I have small goals and it means that I want to improve every part of my game: techniques, the mentality, the fitness side and then we will see where I will be on the rankings.
It’s something that you have inside, the motivation, the fight, and you are trying to never give up.Maybe it’s because our parents had a harsh life.
I don’t really like to be recognized, I’m a more private person. That was the most difficult thing after my last Wimbledon.
I feel this is something more special, to have Wimbledon, than to be No 1.
The tears were the most funny. When I was a kid, my father showed no emotion. And now he was crying … A lot! He was crying on court. He was crying for an hour after the match was over. When I have a good result. Now, he is like that. And now it feels good that he can cry with happiness. It is strange – but good!
