Q: What was you first big purchase after you received your first big paycheck? A: I think was sixteen when I got my first paycheck. It was not much, probably around 100 dollars. I went and bought lunch for all of my friends and celebrated.

A: As a tennis player, I had my idol and it was Pete Sampris. I remember the picture I had of him holding up the Wimbledon trophy and I imagined myself in that position.
Q: What’s the most meaningful gift you’ve ever received?
A: I think my brothers.
Q: What was your biggest fear as a kid?
A: Animals probably. I was just afraid of some animals like snakes and spiders.
Q: As a kid, what was one of the funniest things that ever happened to you?
A: I was maybe 7-8 years old and I went with my school somewhere south of our country and we went camping. We went early in the morning and came back in the evening and I came back without underwear! Because there was no toilet and we were in the middle of the forest and I couldn’t go anywhere so unfortunately I was in the towel for the rest of the trip!
Q: What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you on the court?
A: I think when I did impersonations of the other players, that’s probably the funniest thing that’s ever happened to me. I really surprised myself. I didn’t think I was able to do that, but I think most of the people liked it so I’m really happy.
Q: What was your most meaningful moment as a kid?
A: When I started playing tennis, I was four years old and I played in front of the restaurant that my parents still own.
Q: Can you tell us something about yourself that people would be surprised to know?
A: I’m a sports guy. I really like sports besides tennis. I like to ski. I like snow.
