Without her support, I wouldn’t be playing tennis anymore since many years. “But we had a very open conversation, if she was happy to do this or not, years ago. I’m happy that she’s super supportive, and she’s willing to take on a massive workload with the kiddies. “Same for me, because I wouldn’t want to be away from my kids for more than two weeks. This life wouldn’t work if she said no.”

"They enjoy coming to tournaments. That makes me happy and play better.
