Former French Open champion Sergi Bruguera says he is hoping the current situation caused due to the COVID-19 outbreak will go back to normal in time while speaking in an interview to Radio Marca. Bruguera commented, "Like everyone, I am also hoping that this can be turned around soon and am doing what they tell us, like everyone else.
I'm not an expert, all they recommend is what to do. It’s difficult to focus on the draw which just happened. Ultimately, sport is the last thing you think about, but you think about it positively. “ Spain, who won the inaugural Davis Cup event last year, has been drawn with Ecuador and Russia in the Davis Cup this year during the draw that was released earlier this week.
“With the format that exists, three sets,, any rival can put you in trouble. Any surprise team can jump, if they have qualified for the Finals, it is because they are good teams and you have to respect them. Russia will always be a rival who aims for the title and is one of the favorites to win it.
We have already won last year, nobody takes that away from us and now another edition begins, I hope I can count on the best players because having won last year does not means that you will win again." Speaking about the new Spanish teen sensation Carlos Alcaraz, the 1992 and 1993 Roland Garros champion says, "If he increases his expectation, it is because he has this quality to raise it.
What we need to do is not put more pressure on him because we have had cases where young boys have not been able to live up to the pressure, but yes, we are very happy that Alcaraz has this quality."
