In an interview, former world No. 1 Andy Roddick spoke about Coco Gauff's early success. The American legend said: “I’ve never met Coco. There’s such hype and it’s warranted. I love the way she carries herself.
The way she’s able to navigate and answer questions. It makes me think of the stupid things I said when I was 15." Roddick also spoke about his investments: “The goal was that when I stopped playing, whatever I made on the court would be replaced by whatever I built while I was still playing.
I don’t know that a lot of athletes ... think that way. There’s such an opportunity at a young age to get your money to work for you. With real estate, if you wait long enough, you look smarter 10 or 12 years later."
Serbia's Davis Cup Team Captain Nenad Zimonjic spoke about the group stage ties: "With Japan, we are slight favorites and with France, it's a completely open tie because they have a quality doubles duo. Davis Cup is unpredictable especially with this new format where two singles and one doubles are played, every match is important, it is played at the best of three sets and anyone can upset anyone.
It's difficult to predict anything, it will be up to us prepare at our best. We will do everything to be as prepared as possible. I am happy to be in this team and I am sorry that some of our players were injured. Serbia has so much quality, not just the players but the hitting partners too."
