Yannick Noah: We’ve got a unique chance, which will never happen again

The French Davis Cup Captain recently spoke about the upcoming Davis Cup Final against Croatia, saying that they can create a unique history. “The most important thing was to spend as much time as possible together thinking about this final,” he said.

“We could have imagined a training camp in Paris. Once the day is over, everybody gets back home,” Noah said. “In fact, you lose your focus. Here, as soon as we woke up, we were in the final. When we started to run in the morning, it was still dark, but we were already in the final.

During our meals, we thought about the final,” he continued. With 2019 being the year with the new Davis Cup format, a lot is riding on this final. “We’ve got a unique chance, which will never happen again, to play a Davis Cup final at home,” Noah said.

“We fought for this chance throughout the year. Not only for the team, but also for the event. Most of us have been obsessed by (this final). We want to make sure we are on top of all the things that can be controlled. Then there will be the craziness of the match.” Marin Cilic too had something to say, “I will be ready,” Cilic said.

“We had Davis Cup ties already on clay immediately after hard court tournaments. I believe I’m going to be fine, adjusting my play, a bit more of sliding, running. The conditions (on) indoor clay are slightly faster than outdoor clay.

I will be fine.” ALSO READ Serena Williams reveals the only thing she doesn't love as a mum
