I grew up on clay. ZVEREV
After the match, Sascha commented
“I like playing on clay. It's the surface I grew up on. In Europe, you play most of the season on clay. I actually don't know what my favorite surface is, and I don't actually have a least favorite surface. It more depends on how I play during the time. It more depends on which form I'm in, more than the surface.”
Sascha will play either Feliciano Lopez or Daniil Medvedev in the second round. Then he may face Nadal in the third.
