Last year I had a hard, hard time practising through the clay-court season. “Winning the US Open has helped me for all these Grand Slams I have played so far, and I believe the rest of my career,” Cilic said. I believe when coming at these stages of the tournament that I'm going to still be able to play great tennis. It's a matter of a few points here and there that can make a huge difference.
Although Graf lost, the experience impressed Henin.
Since then, Henin has idolised Graf as her role model.
The grass-court season was difficult because of the back issues I had and the knee issues. “Then in the matches, I could never really play quite so freely last year just because I was more focused on how the knee was behaving rather than how I needed to hit my forehand or backhand, or what's not going to be good for my opponent. I believe being really mentally focused every single match these last couple of months has helped me to get to the point where I'm little bit stronger mentally.
“This year I'm just a normal tennis player again where I can focus on tactics. I believe that can make a huge difference.” Cilic hopes that his experience will be an advantage against Querrey, who has knocked out the world No 1 and defending champion in his last two visits here with his victories over Djokovic and Murray but will be playing in his first Grand Slam semi-final. Hopefully I can keep it going and go one round further.” The American will be playing in his first Grand Slam semi-final at the 42nd attempt, which is a record in the Open era.
Henin's mother routinely took the young Henin across the border to France to watch the French Open.
“It's nice to see that's paying off for the bigger hitters, not just the grinders from the baseline like we know it.A certain different style of play gets rewarded as well.” On the face of it Federer might also be at a disadvantage in that he is 35, significantly older than Berdych (31), Querrey (29) and Cilic (28).
Rodgers split from actress Olivia Munn in 2017 after three years of dating.In 1995, shortly after her mother's death, Henin met her coach Carlos Rodríguez who guided her career both before her retirement in 2008 and during her 2010 comeback.Following a conflict between Justine and her father over her tennis career and her relationship with Pierre-Yves Hardenne, Rodríguez soon became not only her trainer but in some ways a second father figure. In 1997, she won the junior girls' singles title at the French Open.Men’s tennis has enjoyed a golden era thanks to the brilliance of the so-called Big Four, who have provided a rich mix of game styles and skills: Federer with his elegance and aggression, Rafael Nadal with his iron will and durability, Novak Djokovic with his all-round brilliance and Andy Murray with his counter-attacking and athleticism.As all four head towards the twilight of their careers, however, there is a danger that the next generation of champions will not have the same widespread appeal because they are dominated by big hitters who do not have the same variety in their games.You just want to take that decision early enough or see it coming and anticipate.” He added: “I'm much better prepared for Wimbledon this year than last year. The 28-year-old Croat won the 2014 US Open, where he beat Kei Nishikori in the final. “For the other part, I think an extremely important part is to be mentally fresh, mentally ready.
