I knew his game, and we trained several times together, and I played against him at the US Open this year. I was very surprised by the quality of his strokes. But today, I was playing very aggressive when it needed to be, with a very good positional game. It’s pleasing to be in the finals. I’m working hard to get titles up for grabs. However, there is no guarantee of success. What I do know is that I have anyone who can beat my level and get me, and I’m very happy with the chance to see it tomorrow/Sunday is already a holiday can be a credit to my name.”
