In an interview to Eurosport the French player Ugo Humbert spoke about how his mentality has changed. Humbert said: "Before, I was just trying to copy Roger Federer. Now I focus on my own." As quoted by ATP, he also added: “I’m an aggressive player.
I serve well, have a good, flat backhand and I can go to the net to finish the point. They compare me to Guy Forget and Henri Leconte, I’m a mix”. Pierre-Hugues Herbert spoke highly of Humbert: “He almost has no weaknesses.
He can do almost everything and when he has a small weakness, he’s working on it... He has a really good serve, an amazing backhand, a really solid forehand, he’s an aggressive player. He takes some time off you and it’s really tough to play against him.
I think one of the most important things for him is going to be to stay fit because I think he has the energy to work and he wants to be better and you can see it day-by-day when he’s training. That’s what’s nice about him: you have no idea where he can stop.
I think he can be an amazing player. I think he has a lot to achieve yet. He was not far from going to the final in Newport, he played the second week at Wimbledon. I think he can go far”.
