Wilander said abou the Scot: "I worry about Andy Murray. I'd like to hear from him why he's standing out there, giving us the false hope of getting back to who he used to be. I still get a little disappointed, it's his right to take the field.
and achieve such a performance? Why? Do you have the right to take wild cards to the youngest?"
The best and the worst from Paris
The answer came from Nick Kyrgios: "Shut up Mats, your words don't matter to anyone.
Andy, you just need to know that no matter how long you play, we all appreciate and enjoy your tennis. Also I have to say that I've never really seen a Mats Wilander point." Serena Williams on the Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal's rivalry: " The next match against Pironkova? He is playing at an excellent level but the same applies to me too.
I am ready to play against her again, it will be a long match with great exchanges and I will have to play to my maximum to win the victory." Finally Serena also answered with a smile to a question about the rivalry between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as the Spaniard with a possible victory at Roland Garros could reach Federer in the ranking of those who have the most Slams.
Here are her words: "I don't want to talk about this topic, I'm a big fan of Rafael Nadal even though Roger Federer is still Federer. I think these words are enough about this topic."
