“No. I mentioned on centre court at the prize giving ceremony in Australia. When I went to visit his Academy in Mallorca, in around September before the tournament in Basel, he told me he’s gonna pull out, because of his wrist. I was there and we were trying to play with kids, I told him I could only do so much with my knee. I can volley, walk, run a little bit but I can’t do any exhibition with you. I’m so sorry. He said, “No problem. I anyway can’t do much myself.” 4 months later, here we are, Australian Open Final, Miami Final. I win Indian Wells. He wins Monaco. We’re on a roll. I think it’s great for tennis, also great for both of us.”
