The world No. 161 Juan Pablo Varillas spoke about who his reference point is.The Peru's player said: "Rafael Nadal, without a doubt. He doesn't give any point for lost not even in a training session. I try to copy his way to be, his attitude, in order to have a stronger mind.
He is an example not just as a tennis player, but as a person. In life he never gives up." Vallera thinks he has been making some good improvements lately: "I have a more consistent serve, I do not know if I improved it.
Before, i had more ups and downs." About his net game, he added: "I think I improved a lot. Before, I almost never came to the net, now yes. I also try to win some points there. If the opponent sees that I came to the net a couple of times, they will look at me in a different way.
They want to take more risks and that's where they can make mistakes." On how he heads into playing his sixth Davis Cup, he said: "I am excited that we have a good team, a young one that has a lot more to give.
Little by little we are achieving good results. In four or five years, people will speak of us. It's a long term work."
