“They enjoy to watch a little bit. They come for the finals, I guess.”

“It’s disbelief I can achieve such heights. I wasn’t sure I would ever be here in another final after last year. I had some tough ones in the finals, losing two against Novak (Djokovic). But I always believed. I kept on believing and dreaming I could get back.”
“Here am I today with the eighth. It’s fantastic, if you keep believing you can go far in your life.”
