When I was growing up, my brothers and I used to watch Wimbledon on TV during summer holidays, then take it to the streets. We would make a tennis court in our backyard, using orange bags for the net and rackets made from wood. I used to play football at school too, but had to choose between football and tennis. I don’t play football any more, but I still watch it. I love watching all sports.
Tennis is part of me. It’s my passion.
I love being part of the growth of tennis, however small my contribution may be. Every week is an opportunity to do well and see all your hard work pay off. I also love travelling and experiencing new things at every tournament. There are so many tournaments that are special to me, but if I had to choose one it would have to be Wimbledon. It has so much history and tradition, and is also the tournament I watched when I was growing up.
For me, what makes a great match is when the momentum switches and you sense that anything could happen. It’s exciting when you can really feel what’s at stake in the atmosphere.
