ANDREY RUBLEV ON WINNING HIS FIRST MASTERS 1000 TITLE IN MONTE-CARLO - ‘I feel a bit looser because I’ve done something that I was looking for a long time and I feel a bit less weight on the shoulder, but there is so much work that I need to do and now we’re already in Madrid’.
ANEKE RUNE ON HOLGER’S DEVELOPMENT - ‘I think for us it’s been step-by-step and now it’s just bigger titles. Two years ago it was Challengers and Future titles, which for us in the team was still big, but looking at his level now, the results match the level he has today’.
HOLGER RUNE ON HIS PASSION - I’ve gotten the chance to show my passion on the court and show who I am when I play and I like it you know. It’s part of my game style to have this energy on the court and I feel good when I’m pumped and I feel good to play this way’.
ALEXANDER ZVEREV ON WINNING TOURNAMENTS MORE THAN ONCE - ‘I think there are places that suit some players better then others and it’s also like a comfortable place where you’re going back and know you’re going to play well. There’s definitely places where you step on the court and you know you’re going to feel better than the previous week.
BEN SHELTON ON GETTING USED TO LIFE ON TOUR - ‘Every place that I get to is a new experience, you know going to the Lisbon airport, that was the first airport in Europe that I’ve been in, but I’m lucky that my coach and physio have done this many times, so to have them with me to help guide me is very, very important’.
DANIIL MEDVEDEV ON WHY HIS GAME ISN’T SUITED TO CLAY - ‘I could talk for hours but first of all you have to adjust to every shot because every bounce could be a bad bounce and you never know when it’s coming and some players are easy to adapt to this, but that’s not my case. I like when it’s a clean stroke and that’s what I need in my game. The movement is definitely different, because you have to slide and be ready for the next shot and that’s what I do not good enough’.
ABDULLAH SHELBAYH ON HIS DESIRE TO REPRESENT ARABIC PLAYERS - ‘I try to not put too much pressure on myself but having Ons Jabeur and Malek Jaziri and Ons as one of the best in the world is very inspiring for me. Honestly to see more Arabic players coming to the tour is very special and I hope I can reach the heights that Ons has reached and even more hopefully’.
DAVID WITT ON ON THE BENEFITS ON JESSICA PEGULA TRAINING WITH FRANCES TIAFOE - ‘We hit with Frances Tiafoe one time and I think it’s good for both of them because Frances is so happy-go-lucky, so it let’s Jess know that you don’t always have to be so serious, but at the same time Jess makes him be more serious, so they bounce off each other’.
