Your story ?
I started at the age of 5, just by chance really, as no one in my family played tennis. I was in a fairly active club that was quite competitive, so I was spotted at a young age. These last two years I was still pretty close to the top 100, but I've had several physical niggles again. My ATP ranking is still 350, but the question now is: do I have the strength to get back into the top 100? I’m taking time to think whilst training hard still...

Your best memory tennis ?
Roland Garros in 2009, without a doubt. I was in the 3rd round, having beaten Marat Safin in the second round in 5 sets. Also, it’s my best ever result at a Grand Slam. I also have a few memories from Bercy, and anywhere else where I didn't win but where there was a great court and different atmospheres that felt good.

Preferred game style?
I try and use my serve, which is one of my strengths. But I also depend on my forehand. When I’m fit and on my game, I like to turn around my backhand and do some damage with my forehand. My serve and my forehand. When these are both working well, my backhand gets better too. But the first are definitely my two favourite weapons.

What do you expect of your new challenge with Artengo ?
I truly believe that the brand is going to continue to grow over the next few years; I really want to help so we can develop the products together.
