After the match, the American commented

“I’m a little bit at a loss for words, honestly. A lot of work, a lot of training and a lot of sacrifices goes into even making a final and to get a win; I’m kind of speechless.¬†Just grateful that I can be out here, play and compete. I’ve dealt with some injuries, so just to be healthy and playing well, it feels really good.”

After this week the American will gain 22 places to be the new world no. 41. He will now head to Melbourne where he will face Nishioka in the 1st round.

I fell in love with tennis after the epic 2008 Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. From that moment I started to check all the possible stats and the stories behind the tennis players. I have a huge passion for Roger Federer, a great respect for Rafael Nadal and I am interested in the newcomers. Aryna Sabalenka and Naomi Osaka are my favorite players on the WTA tour.
