The Spaniard also mentioned Dominic Thiem, David Ferrer, Ivo Karlovic and Gael Monfils as an image of his perfect formed player. Furthermore, he chose himself in the area of ​​determination, saying that he has always given his best despite injuries and setbacks.

«As for the backhand, I have to pick Novak Djokovic. He can defend superbly from that side and attack down the line and across the court, with plenty of options during exchanges. I have to pick Roger Federer’s forehand when pick up the ball very early and create winners from anywhere on the court.

Roger can hit his right hand flat or add spin to it; it is a powerful weapon. Ivo Karlovic’s serve is the most powerful opening shot in the game. When Ivo serves well, as he does in almost every match, the remaining player cannot create any chances before the tie break.

I would choose myself in the determination segment. I have had the proper resolution throughout my career after all my injuries. I have continued to practice with passion to achieve my goals and fight in every match. Fitness-wise, my pick is Dominic Thiem.

Gael Monfils must be the fastest player and I think Andy Murray has the best shot selection.»
