I don’t know. I’m not thinking about anything right now. Just, like, enjoying the moment, and I will see what’s going to happen next. I don’t know. I’m just playing match after match. I don’t know.

“I don’t realise yet that I beat the No.1 in the world. I don’t realise that I played at the big court. I don’t know how I’m going sleep tonight. I don’t know when I will realise everything: maybe at the end the tournament when I’m done with it. I don’t know.
