I am always wearing a bracelet, necklace, and watch. I don't even care if they don't match.
I like camouflage a lot.
I'm a very creative person in general. I like to create stuff in my downtime off the court.
I've always been a very easy-going person.
The first time I heard 'Baby Federer,' I was maybe 16. After that, it sort of took off.
In the beginning, I thought the Federer comparisons were cool, but after a while, I wasn't happy with it. It's not the best thing you can hear as you're trying to develop, as it puts extra pressure on a young kid.
I've always been a fighter. I can get pretty feisty sometimes.
It's good to have a good teacher, but you always need a pretty good student.
I really believe that I can be the No 1, but for that to happen, I probably need to win a couple of grand slams, and they are not going to fall from the sky.
I love design; to create stuff from ground zero is the best for me. I'm always so intense when I talk about that.
I don't want to say 'gullible,' but when I saw someone, I always thought that person is the way they present themselves.
I never thought I was going to make a career out of tennis, to be honest, until I was 10 or 11 years old. One of my earliest memories is when I was seven, and I was competing against players that were three, four years older than me. I didn't take it too seriously at the time. I was having a lot of fun.
My dad taught me how to play tennis, and I owe that to him. But the better you get, the higher you climb, and the more lonely you get. I've had to sacrifice a lot of personal relationships, but that's the choice I made.
I can take five showers in one day.
I'm a very good sleeper, especially during a tournament; I usually get eight hours a night, even before a big match.
There is always a dream, for me, in the locker room before matches as well during the day. If you have a strong mind, a strong tendency to keep you strong, I think your dream is coming.
For me, I like that, how do you say, bohemian sort of look. Baggy sweaters to really fitted pants - I love Rick Owens's stuff, for example. I am really into that kind of grungy style.
Tennis players have the ugliest feet.
I like to stay away from that red carpet world unless I absolutely have to do it. I'd rather put on my Tom Ford suit and take a few pictures at home.
