I promised to play the Laver Cup in London, so I wanted to link three weeks in a row playing, and Tel Aviv was in a suitable place for me”, pointed out the current number seven in the world.
“Also, I haven’t been here for a long time and my last time here was a fantastic experience, I felt welcome.
