And we will see, everything can happen. I will be very focused on myself, on my serve and on my game. We will see what's going on tomorrow.

- How do you like the clay on the centre court?

- How does it feel to play with somebody from the same country as you?

- It is not very easy. You know, Caroline is my friend. We went to dinner two days ago. So, when you play, it is not a good feeling, you don't know if you have to push like that. But at the end it is appointment, you have to be focused on yourself and forget that she is your friend.
