Could you say that after the weekend in Prague you two are closer and know each other better?
“Of course we are now closer because he (Roger) and I have spent more time together. We lived alongside each other for 24 hours for a few days. But, equally, I know Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem, Marin Cilic and Thomas Berdych better. The fact that we were together in a team means that you know each other better and you share situations and emotions together, which brings you together. In our case, having been such staunch rivals for so many years, the fact that we shared a competition like this, an innovative and attractive one, with players working hard, has united us more. To also play in doubles and what it means for us and for everyone in tennis was an unforgettable moment. When these things happen you feel closer to each other.”
