Karen Khachanov: 'My wife did not watch my matches live for four months'

Karen Khachanov became a father some months ago and he has not been able to spend a lot of time with his wife. However, at Moscow's Kremlin Cup Khachanov counted on his love's support. "Veronica was not able to support me from stands for a long time, more than four months after the Roland Garros.

I'm glad that she is with me again at the stadium and can support me. We had a little talk after the match and she immediately went to David. Now, as soon as I am free, I will also join them", said Khachanov. On fatherhood, Khachanov added: "Wonderful experience.

The best moment of life when you see a small miracle born. As you noticed, I did not have much time to spend at home. Before the tournament in St. Petersburg, I spent the day with my family. Then after the match one day. Five days before China, and now four days.

I hope this week will be longer. And then after Paris, I will spend time with my family too. Before the tournament in St. Petersburg, I met with Alexander Kerzhakov and Andrei Arshavin during our visit to the Gazprom Arena stadium, and then I met Artem Dzyuba, already on the court.

Just after we got acquainted with Alexander, we began to keep communicating. He watched all my matches in China. Congratulated me, wrote, got up early in the morning. He said that he hadn’t woken up so early for a long time.

But now he has time to sleep off because he doesn’t play anymore [laughter]. He himself said that he really wanted to come to Moscow to support me. So I invited him to this match."
