What does it mean to represent your country in the Olympics? It’s always nice to play in such a large event like the Olympics but let’s put it this way, it’s not as exciting as if it was for the first time but then I am very excited to be in the Olympic Village because last time in London it was very unfortunate that Wimbledon was so far away and I didn’t get a chance to stay in the Village and feel the Olympic atmosphere and being with the other athletes.
In preparation for our return (6th year in a row!) to the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in beautiful Newport, RI, I came across some hilarious footage from a fun interview with Nicholas Mahut and Sergiy Stakhovsky. We must have asked them some pretty hard hitting questions as evidenced by their thoughtful answers but please note their comic inability to describe each other in just three words. :-)
It's a shame neither of them are back in Newport this year but hopefully they will be back soon!
