American tennis star Taylor Fritz reveals he is a big Ronaldo fan as he loves the confidence with which the Portuguese carries himself. Ronaldo is one of the greatest players in football history and one of the most popular athletes in sports history.
Fritz loves the confidence with which the the Portuguese plays and the American tennis star says he sees some similarities between him and the Manchester United star. “I’m a massive fan of Ronaldo. Like, forever.
Not just from when he’s at United now, when he was at United earlier in his career. I’m such a big Ronaldo fan because I love his confidence. A lot of people call him cocky or whatever, but I think I’m very much the same way and I think that you need to be very confident and believe in yourself.
I love his work ethic as well; he’s such an incredibly hard worker, so I look up to him a lot and so I’ve always just been a fan of United," Fritz told the ATP website.
Fritz back to Indian Wells
Fritz, ranked at No.
20 in the world, achieved the best result of his career at the Indian Wells Masters last year. Fritz fell just short of winning his maiden Masters title last year in Indian Wells. Fritz missed out on a great chance to win Indian Wells as he was beaten in the final by Nikoloz Basilashvili.
“It’s my favourite tournament," Fritz said. "It feels like my home tournament because I have a tonne of family that lives here and I spent so much time here growing up as well, coming here as a kid before I was a professional tennis player.
“Then obviously this was my big breakthrough last year, the semi-finals, and since then I’ve just kind of been riding on that momentum from here”.
