“I think I went about things the right way. The umpires might disagree with me, but I was consistent and I don’t feel like I left a lot on the table on a daily basis, so that’s what I look back on, and that’s probably what I’m proud of.

I’m not ignorant to the fact that it’s a huge part of me and that I won’t miss it. Of course I will. I’m not pretending like there’s not going to be hard days, but I feel pretty settled in the decision and I feel content and happy with it.”

“Sometimes you’re just happy playing. Some people, some media unfortunately don’t understand that it’s okay just to play tennis and enjoy it. They always think you have to win everything, it always needs to be a success story, and if it’s not, obviously, what is the point? Maybe you have to go back and think, ‘why have I started playing tennis?’ Because I just like it. It’s actually sort of a dream hobby that became somewhat of a job. Some people just don’t get that ever.”
