I Feel Pressure To Play The Style Of Tennis People Expect
Why are you not wearing Capri Model trousers?
Nike gave me Capri model trousers to wear and I tried them in the Basel tournament. I remember that the other athletes looked at me perplexed... I justified myself by saying that it was only a test and that I would never play in it. I'm not the type and I can't make this work for me, then Moya used them first and then Rafa Nadal and especially him they were fine!
What keeps you going?
Fans? I do it for them too, for my fans. What keeps me going is to hit the ball, the feeling of winning a match point and receiving encouragement from the crowd. It is a unique feeling. It touches me very deeply.
What about your partnership with Edberg?
Stefan has been able to make many things in my tennis more linear. For example, he helped me improve my net approach. When he speaks, I know to deal with a champion who has achieved so much in his career.
Why did you prefer to move away from the tour?
My career has been too good and this is why, compared to 2013, in 2016 I preferred to move away from the Tour to return stronger than before.
When did your popularity rise?
I think I peaked in popularity probably in 2012. I couldn't become more popular or receive more support from people. Without a doubt one of the main reasons why I keep playing is to feel the support of people, to be close to them, looking for to strike good shots and give them a show.
