There aren’t a lot of secrets but I surely have to make sure that my game is on.
There are a few very important phases where you clearly need to be ready and you have to use those and put yourself into the position for that.
You can never really plan anything but, of course, you wish that you win your service games confidently and use the chances you get.
There is always something you could work on.
I try to take the aggressiveness, the confidence and the wittiness and fun with me.
It’s great to still be in the tournament, playing on the big courts. I really enjoy it.
I’m not playing for titles. Maybe it comes.
Everybody’s playing for their home country so I do not take any match in Davis Cup easy, even if it looks much better on paper for me. There’s a lot of pressure.
If the big guys are confident and they win many matches, they’re going to be tough to beat.
It’s very helpful for me as a coach to be in a team. It would be impossible to do this job alone, so it gives me a little bit of safety that I have someone who gives me good feedback.
The best feeling on court is not when you play your best tennis, it’s when you really fight.
The top four guys are not getting any younger. Novak, Roger and maybe Murray they are still dominating the tennis, but in a few years from now, there will be nobody that strong. At this moment, I don’t see anyone.
Winning a title is always very special. It came at a great time, let’s put it this way. I’m just enjoying at the moment the good run.
It’s great that the top guys play Davis Cup. The teams with the top guys, they are good for the sport. Even if they play now against us and it makes it much tougher for us, I think it’s good.
I’m feeling healthy, strong actually.
I have to work harder, and if you work hard, normally the results will come.
I always said I want to reach this and that, and this year I struggled a little bit with my expectations, so for mow I just want to play, I don’t want to look how far I can go.
That’s a huge factor for everybody—if you play in front of very nice crowd, that’s a great advantage.
The German media is not very hard, but sometimes we wish we would get a little bit more credit for what we do.
Obviously, I am not that good enough to win a Grand Slam but I think I still do a very good job to be the World No. 20. Sometimes it would be nice to get a bit more credit for this.
Almost every final is close because both players never give up. They want to win the title.
