Now I want to play even more and win more and more, whatever the competition. Laver Cup? I'm excited of course, I didn't usually come here to play in St. Petersburg, but this time I had no choice and wanted to see what this competition was like.
All the tennis players who have participated have always told me it was very fun but competitive at the same time. My new look? In the end there is no particular change, I was simply on vacation and I thought about cutting my hair and making it shorter, it doesn't seem like a different or strange look to me, just cut my hair!"
