In an interview with, the two-time Monte-Carlo champion spoke about his participation in the Masters Tournament, which will start on November 12. "It is important that I am able to find stability in all areas of my life, so that I can go far in several consecutive tournaments.

I know I won't win every tournament I play, but if I can consistently reach the semi-finals and finals, I will gain enormous confidence in myself. It is a result that I achieved in the last period of the year and I want to remain constant," he said.

The doubles victory together with his brother Petros in Antwerp allowed him to emerge from a less than happy period in his career: "What we did that week was then reflected in my individual career.

It showed me how much I can compete when I have confidence in myself and give my best." According to the world number 6, the ATP Finals have even greater weight than the four Slams: "It is a celebration of the best of our sport.

We focus on the fact that we are the best on the entire planet and we have to fight among ourselves to get this mega trophy, which means a lot and is a gigantic prize for any tennis player. Honestly, I would consider the ATP Finals as something bigger than a Grand Slam.

They have great prestige and it is a great advantage for your record if you manage to win," he concluded. The draw in the meantime is set for tomorrow, from 3pm, and will establish which will be the two groups of the new edition of the Nitto ATP Finals.
