In a press conference, Jay Clarke reflected on his great week in Wimbledon. The British player lost to Roger Federer in the second round and played mixed doubles with the 15-year-old Cori Gauff. "Oh, it's been unbelievable, obviously.
Getting a wildcard in. Winning my first match here. Playing Federer. Obviously playing with Coco. There are so many positives to take from it. Yeah, I'm sure I'll remember this one", said Clarke. Asked about his pre-match rituals, Clarke replied: I like to listen to -- I love music that keeps me calm before matches, because obviously when you get out there there's a lot of nerves anyway.
Yeah, I like to find my own space, put some relaxed music on." What about Gauff? "I like to look at prank videos on YouTube and listen to music," said the American. Clarke finally praised Gauff: "You look at the people she's obviously being compared to and the past champions that have won this that have said it. It was a lot of praise, rightly so. Yeah."
