Roland Garros playing options
“I do not look to the future in a professional way but in a medical way to preserve the health of all tournament workers, ATP workers and all players. I see an uncertain, complicated situation, but things you never know how they evolve. If you can compete safely, with the same possibilities for everyone, because we come from different parts of the world, and everyone can participate, I will be there. But today we must go with caution and responsibility to make the right decisions to guarantee the health of all of us who make up the world of tennis «.
State of form after the break
«I have been two months and something without being able to leave the house. Luckily, I have machines that have allowed me to do physical training. Now I have been training for a couple of weeks, but very little by little. I don’t train every day. I train gradually, slowly and with the utmost caution. The goal is to be ready for when you can play again and right now we don’t know. “
“The situation is complicated for everyone because it is a global pandemic that is affecting everyone and it is a sad and unpleasant situation for everyone. There is no choice but to be positive and look ahead to visualize a hopeful and better world.
