“I don’t feel like I’m in the final eight yet. In general, I do not expect anything, I hope it will be possible to show the maximum and fight to the end. Of course, I’m madly worried a week before the competition. I don’t want to be a tourist, I want to show that it was not by accident that I got there.
We live in a hotel right in front of the stadium. We can move only on three floors in the hotel. Only, it turns out that the hotel and the courts, we can not go beyond”
