Honestly, I'm more into the computer, the Internet, and checking out scores or the news.


I've lived for 10 years in Switzerland, so I speak German.


I was always at peace because of the way my mom treated me.


I'm not saying I'm something special. I might play a little better tennis than other people, but it is because I was given the chance, and not many people are.

The top players talk more now, and we have more meetings. We're just trying to get things better. But we still need somebody who could make a difference.


Well, maybe at home I don't have the best image.


I don't think it's a low point being in the finals of the French Open, three points away from the victory.


We had a poster of the Davis Cup in 1986. It was in Prague, the Czech Republic against Sweden, and we went to watch, so I got the poster. You couldn't get all the posters. You were lucky if you got one.
