" I don't play mind games in the locker room with my competitors, with my rivals. I think that the biggest challenge, mental challenge, for myself is actually me ... I have a mental fight with myself where I try to focus on positive thoughts and then, if you manage to do that, because of intensity level and competition level, you go through a lot of stages where you have doubts. Where you have fears of winning, of losing, you know. "
" I guess you should never say never with Roger — perhaps you should never write him off ... Last year, I said I didn’t think he had another Grand Slam within him and then he won Wimbledon. But I don’t think he’s where he was last year. I imagine he’ll get to the quarter-finals or the semi-finals, depending on the draw but for me he’s just behind Andy, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. But the fact is that Roger’s not beaten Rafa in a Grand Slam since the Wimbledon Final in 2007. "
