The most important tournament for me is Rolland Garros because im french and it would be a kind of pride to win it, ALLEZ.
Describe your style of play:
I am above all a good defender but I recently integrated the counter and attac in my play style in order to be able to adapt to faster surfaces and to be a complete player.
Who would you consider to be your greatest rival on the tour and player you enjoy to play the most:
I can not choose between Isniper and Richie because I often play epic matches against them (and I often lose lol) it is partly thanks to them that I surpass myself on the game in order to be able to reach their level but I still have a lot of job.
Most memorable victory:
My biggest victory is obviously against Richie at the Australian Open, I played the perfect match from start to finish and it was the one that added prestige when I won this tournament .
Most disappointing loss:
For the moment my biggest defeat is that against Isniper in the semi final of Idian Wells, I led 5-3 in the 3rd set and I managed to lose the match ... but it remains a very good experience.
