First Tennis Memory: My cousin Alexander was playing before me. He was a bit older. The club was near my house, like maybe 500 meters. So I was always seeing him playing, so I wanted to play because of him.

Tennis Inspiration: Roger.

First Famous Player You Met Or Encountered: Monfils in Roland Garros. Not the tournament but the French Federation Center. He was practicing in the gym, me too. And then we spoke to each other. He was very cool.

Last Book Read: I don’t read a lot. So it could be one at the school.

Current Car: No license.

Greatest Sports Moment: Maybe my first round in Roland Garros in 2017 against Medvedev. I won a four set match. I was like 280 so it was amazing for me to play the match in that atmosphere was crazy.

Most Painful Moment: Maybe… I got it… Wimbledon 2018. I qualified and then played Lakko in the first round. Lost in four sets. But it was to play Roger on center court (in second round).

Favorite Tournament: French Open.

Best You Ever Felt On Court: I think right now. This is my new best. I’m playing very good this season (19-18 match record). So I think so far this one.

Funny Tennis Memory: In French team match we have a group of players with only French players from Toulouse. We smile a lot, we laugh a lot, It’s only three weeks per year but we have a lot of fun.

Strangest Match: Yes in Futures in Portugal we were playing like seven in the evening. And there was like many goats walking around back with the man in charge of them. But seeing all the goats next to the court going back to the land for the night.

Embarrassing Career Memory: Nope. I don’t think so.

Why Do You Love Tennis: Because you have a lot of fun playing it. Sometimes it’s painful when you don’t play good but there’s a lot of shots to do and a lot of fun. And I think that’s why.

Favorite Sport Outside Tennis: Futbol.

Favorite Athletes To Watch: Steph Curry. Maybe some French futbol players.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Macadamia Haagen Dazs.

People Qualities Most Admired: The generosity. Just to be kind and respectful.
