About what it’s like to play at night

– I think that when playing here at night, the ball slows down a bit, it weighs a bit. I have to be a little patient, play regularly and not lose aggressive play. But maybe it is necessary to be mentally patient because the ball bounces more. I have to manage the day a little differently to how I’m doing so far.»

You don’t want to feel pressured to be the best.

«The truth is that I always want to go undercover. Mentally, I do much better when I’m not under pressure. And when I can get it by playing against a lower ranked player, I try to take that away because I know that ranking doesn’t make a player better. And today I played with a very high level player who beat Tommy Paul. I think I had a tougher game today than if I had played against Paul. I try to take everything as a learning experience«.

But it’s something that makes me happy in my career. I try not to think too much about it or set myself a goal continuously improve the ranking, but continues to develop as a player. But at the end of the week I’ll stop to enjoy it a little and try to continue on this line, which I’m following now».
