The former world No. 2 and French Open winner Albert Costa drew his perfect tennis player. He picked Rafael Nadal for body and mentality, Roger Federer for the forehand, Novak Djokovic for the backhand, Pete Sampras for serve and smash and David Ferrer for footwork.
Costa also spoke about the new Davis Cup format: "We will attract many more people. With the old format the final basically featured just two countries and it lost interest for the others. Now the fan can be involved throughout the week.
I think we will see much passion on the grounds. The environment can be unbelievable." How is Pique living it? "His Absolute priority is football and he is focused on it. But he is very involved in the project and he spends time about it all days.
He brings us ideas and good messages that help us a lot. He is very innovative. He consistently thinks about creating new things." Asked if Spain going far will be one of the keys for the success of Davis Cup, he replied: "It's clear that the excitement and the passion will grow for it.
But the event will work very well regardless of it. There was a lot of contact with countries to attract fans and not just have Madrid's fans. It will be something International." . Serena Williams opened up on the complications of her pregnancy: "Because of what I went through, it would be really difficult if I didn't have the healthcare that I have - and to imagine all the other women that do go through that without the same healthcare, without the same response, it's upsetting. It may be time for women to be comfortable with having uncomfortable conversations."
