If not, I'm going to be in big trouble. Then anything can happen, and I hope to be ready for that.feedback

Jun 11 2017

I play my best at all events, but the feeling here is impossible to describe. It's impossible to compare it to another place. The nerves, the adrenaline, I feel on the court are impossible to compare to another feeling. This is the most important event in my career.feedback

Jun 11 2017

If I have pain in the knees, then I know from experience that it's almost impossible. Because I need to feel strong, low and powerful legs to play well in Wimbledon. If I don't feel that, then probably my chances are not there, no? But if I am healthy and I am able to have the right preparation and feel healthy during Wimbledon, then I am probably going to have my chances to play well.feedback

Jun 11 2017

This has been, I think, a perfect Roland Garros for me. It is true that this one is going to be one of the more special for the number, for what happened on the ceremony after the final, for so many things. And because I am 31 already and not a kid any more. Today was a very important day for me. [There] have been some tough moments last times, injuries, so it's great to have big success like this again.feedback

Jun 11 2017

As I like to say, if I can do it, someone else can do it. But you need the right circumstances, the right ingredients to win 10 French Open titles. I don't know if I will ever get to meet the player who will do better than I did. It has been very special to me, and it's true that it is unprecedented. Trust me, I'm very happy that I'm the one who did it. I'm very happy.feedback

Jun 10 2017

It's true that when he hits hard, he hits really hard. Stopping him can be difficult. I do not want him to play his game, which means I need to make sure I don't let him be in that position where he can hit hard. I will have to do everything I can to keep him from playing aggressively. If I can play long balls, if I can hit hard, if I can do that, well, I think I will be able to control him.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Nine or 10 is only 10 percent more. I don't care about the games I lost or not, or sets, or these kind of things. Only thing I care (about) is I have been playing very well during the whole event.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Never in my life have I played for revenge. I don't think it's a good mentality or a good way to approach things. Each match is a different story. I consider every match I play important. The one who plays the best will win.feedback

Jun 09 2017

It's true that I have been having a great tournament.feedback

Jun 09 2017

Obviously there's a couple of years that are more special than others. But I have a good memory, no? I remember almost everything.feedback

Jun 09 2017

It's true that 10 is a beautiful number, but actually my favorite is 9.feedback

Jun 07 2017

I don't know how many games I lost this year, but I really don't care about this, no? I only care that I am in the semifinals.feedback

Jun 04 2017

I am in the quarterfinals, and I am healthy and I am playing well. That's the only important thing for me, no? The rest of the things (don't) matter.feedback

Jun 04 2017

I'm happy because Roberto is a very good player. It's very important for me to be in the quarterfinals one more time.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I don't know if it was perfection. I went on court thinking it was going to be a tough match ... I believe I played the best match since a while.feedback

Jun 02 2017

Today was one of the best matches I have ever played, without a doubt.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I always thought that that tarp was dangerous and not in the right place.feedback

May 29 2017

For me, it's important to serve a little bit better than what I did today.feedback

May 29 2017

I won here nine times, and every year that I won I was unbelievably happy, but every year that I come back, I was unbelievably nervous.feedback

May 26 2017

I know I need to be ready since the beginning, because I have a tough opponent in the first round. So I am focused on trying to work the right way.feedback

May 26 2017

I had a lot of success on clay, winning three events out of four that I played. That's great for me, no? It makes me happy to feel myself competitive and play well in every event that I played. I am very happy the way that I arrived here. Now I have to play well here. That's all.feedback

May 19 2017

Now remains Roland Garros. I'm going to rest a little bit. That, I think, I deserve.feedback

May 19 2017

Today I was not able to push him back. He had the control of the points.feedback

May 19 2017

It's not easy, no, after playing almost every day for the last four weeks, no? It's normal that one day you don't feel perfect, and if you are unlucky on that day that you don't feel that well, the opponent plays unbelievable. So, then, tomorrow I will be in Majorca fishing or playing golf or doing another thing. Every tournament is so emotional for me; every tournament is so important.feedback

May 15 2017

These last few weeks have been very special. I'm very happy for what I achieved.feedback

May 14 2017

It was a very important final for both of us -- for him as it was the first in the Masters 1000 and for me it's always special to play here in Madrid in this unique tournament. You never know when it might be the last so I always try to enjoy it.feedback

May 13 2017

I knew I'd have to play very well and I thought I did very well in the first set. Then in the second I got the typical nerves from playing Djokovic. I couldnt be happier. To reach another final in Madrid means everything to me.feedback

May 12 2017 - World Cup

Pique is part of a group that wants to create a World Cup that would be a great and very interesting tournament to compete in. It's a fantastic initiative -- I think the fans and the circuit need an event like this. I don't know Gerard, nor have I spoke with him, and I don't think he will be the boss of the project, but I hope that his proposal is taken forward.feedback

May 12 2017

It was a beautiful game, we both played at the very highest level and there were great points for everyone to see. He (Goffin) demands the most of you, he's one of the best in the world, one of the candidates to win the most important trophies. I knew I was playing well in the first set but I just couldn't take my chances. Winning is very important but also the way I'm playing at the moment makes me very relaxed.feedback

Apr 28 2017

I have to be honest, I had hardly seen him play, all I had to go on were videos which I watched yesterday. These young players have a lot of character so I took to the court with respect, perhaps too much, but in the second set I started dominating.feedback

Apr 27 2017

They weren't the best conditions for me. I much prefer it when the ball is doing more. It wasn't easy. He's a really tall player who hits the ball well in comfortable positions. I tried to make him take the ball on the move in order to make him less comfy.feedback

Apr 26 2017

I want to thank everyone who makes this tournament possible, a historic tournament and one of the best of the year. It makes me enormously proud that this court bears my name. It's a huge honor and hugely satisfying. The court was a bit slower than usual because of the rain, but I'm happy, the (tournament) debut is always delicate. Tomorrow I will have to take another step forward against an opponent like Anderson. I'm happy to be in the third round.feedback

Apr 23 2017

It has been an amazing week on one of the most important events on the tour. I played well here, which helps me a lot to start the claycourt season with confidence.feedback

Apr 22 2017

I imagine the ball was out but I was on the other side, I could not see the mark.feedback

Apr 02 2017

I think I am close to what I need to be. I am at a very high level of tennis, and I believe I am ready to win titles.feedback

Apr 02 2017

He's playing good, no? That's all. He's playing good and with high confidence. When a top player like him is playing with this high confidence and playing that good, then it's tough to win.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I'm just excited to play against Roger always. He's a big challenge for me, and I think for everybody.feedback

Mar 31 2017

Winning here would be something great, and an important title I haven't won. Fabio is a player who is able to combine great points with mistakes. The match became strange – not a lot of rhythm. The second set was tough.feedback

Mar 30 2017

That was the key of the second set, two-love (down), 15-40. With three-zero a player like Jack, you'll probably be thinking third set. It was a double positive thing. I saved that game and got the break back (in the next game). The match was much closer than the result says.feedback

Mar 03 2017

Every game here is special. I did not play my best tennis, but that's why it has a merit. I played great the previous rounds and today I was able to get over a tough situation. I'm happy to be in the semifinals. That's great news.feedback

Mar 03 2017

He's one of the toughest rivals in the world, he has a great serve and is very aggressive. I will have to play so much better than today if I want to have a shot. It's a big match. I hope to be prepared for it.feedback

Jan 29 2017

Congratulation to Roger ... Just amazing, the way he's playing after such a long time of him not being on the tour. For sure, you have been working a lot to make that happen. I fight a lot these two weeks. Today, a great match, probably Roger deserved it a little bit more than me.feedback

Jan 29 2017

I cannot say that I am sad. I wanted to win, yes, but I am not very sad. I did all the things that I could. I worked a lot during all these months. I enjoyed the competition. I won against the best players of the world, and I competed well against everybody.feedback

Jan 29 2017

Today I am enjoying the sport.feedback

Jan 29 2017

I believe that playing like this, good things can happen. Can happen here in this surface, but especially can happen on clay. On clay can be special.feedback

Jan 29 2017

The real thing is what makes me more happy, more than the titles, is go on the court and feel that I can enjoy the sport.feedback

Jan 29 2017

I had some hard time not being able to compete in full condition. ... some injuries, well not new for me, but still tough when it happens. I fight a lot these two weeks. Today, a great match, probably Roger deserved it a little bit more than me.feedback

Jan 27 2017

It's special to play Roger again in the final of a grand slam, I cannot lie.feedback

Jan 27 2017

I feel that this rivalry is talked about outside the tennis world, and that is good for our sport. I remember myself crying on the car coming back to hotel. That was a tough moment.feedback

Jan 27 2017

Arrive moment ... I say to myself, I am giving my best, I am playing very well. If I lose, that's it. Grigor deserves, too. I think both of us deserve to be in that final. Was a great fight. Finally was me. I feel lucky.feedback

Jan 27 2017

Grigor played great. I played great. So was a great quality of tennis. So just for me, is amazing to be through to a final of Grand Slam again here in Australia at the first of the year. Arrive moment in the fifth set that for sure I wanted to win. I say to myself, I am giving my best, I am playing very well. If I lose, that's it. Grigor deserves, too. I think both of us deserve to be in that final. Was a great fight. Finally was me. I feel lucky.feedback

Jan 27 2017

Grigor was playing unbelievable. It was a great match. I feel very happy to be part of it, I enjoyed it a lot. To qualify for the final in a match like this means a lot to me.feedback

Jan 26 2017

He's a player that has an unbelievable talent, unbelievable potential. He started the season playing unbelievable. It's going to be a very tough match for me. I hope for him, too. I'm going to try to play my best because I know he's playing with high confidence.feedback

Jan 26 2017

I think all of them are top players. So that's very important for me because that means that I'm competitive and playing well. Very happy that after a lot of work, to be in this round again. Is a special thing for me, especially here in Australia.feedback

Jan 26 2017

Even moments he played so good from the baseline, I was there trying to stop his aggressive shots and don't lose court, don't lose meters behind the baseline. That's an important change for me. I feel very happy for my attitude. I hit some great passing shots. That's good news for me. When I make that happen, it's because I'm playing well.feedback

Jan 25 2017

Even when I was winning a lot I had doubts, you can imagine I had more when I had injuries. I think I had a great career, but at the same time I had a lot of tough moments. That makes me enjoy even more the good moments I'm having today.feedback

Jan 21 2017

Now I'm disappointed, but I know that this was a great match. That was a great fight.feedback

Jan 21 2017

Well, fighting – and running a lot. I think you know, everybody knows how good Alexander is. He's the future of our sport and the present, too.feedback

Jan 17 2017

After Roland Garros, everything was so difficult. Too many problems with the wrist and that's all in the past now.feedback

Jan 17 2017

For me to have him on the bench helping with the rest of the team makes me happy. I'm excited about 2017.feedback

Jan 17 2017

So I'm just happy with the way that I played. I played well in all the key points. That's very important for me.feedback

Jan 06 2017

Probably if I put that passing shot forehand cross, I had the break in the second set, big chance that we will be here one hour before with a victory. That passing shot was long, and that's it. Then he had the break and match changes.feedback

Jan 05 2017

It's going to be a tough match. His serve is huge so I will need to return aggressively.feedback

Jan 05 2017

The most important thing is fight against these kind of things.feedback

Jan 05 2017

I think that the sport is doing the right things to fight against that. And, you know, all the people that are not doing the things right, now they are in trouble.feedback

Jan 05 2017

I have been a lot of years on tour and happen almost every year. You get tired about this kind of stuff. On the professional ATP World Tour, I can talk. I don't know if this happened here, but for sure is not happening very often. If it happened, it has been just very few times, because I see every match people fight, people don't want to lose.feedback

Aug 26 2016

I feel great. There is nothing like the U.S. Open.feedback

Aug 26 2016

I love fishing and being in the sea with boats. I normally go with lines or spear-guns. I love sea bass. It's great when you are on the boat and catch a sea bass, and have dinner with it.feedback

Aug 26 2016 - Mediterranean diet

It's nothing very professional. Fish is my favorite, grilled with olive oil. And I try to have some carbs, maybe pasta or rice. I try to eat nothing heavy before competition.feedback

Aug 13 2016

I will be at a disadvantage, but the scheduling is just something you have to accept. Just 25 days ago I couldn't even train. He was unsure until days before the Games whether he would compete at all.feedback

Aug 03 2016

I'm going to do as best as possible in every event I play in.feedback

Aug 01 2016

I will not be at the best level in any of the categories. I have not competed for two months and I have not trained a lot. I will train a few days here to see what I can do and then decide what is best, to be more positive for me and the team.feedback

Jun 04 2013

That's the real thing.feedback

May 24 2013

I was playing well the last couple of weeks that's always really positive, it means a lot. The results I had in Barcelona and Madrid and Rome. So very happy that I am able to be back. If that dream ( to reach the final) comes true I want an opponent that will play very bad that day.feedback

Nov 20 2012

Every day is better otherwise I wouldn't be on the court. The images say the evolution has been favourable and that is reason for satisfaction after many months of working and waiting.feedback

Aug 15 2012

I am sorry since I always found great crowds and great support, but I have to continue with my recuperation and preparation to be ready to play in the right conditions.feedback
