OK, firstly I want to congratulation Jennifer. We played in the semis of the US Open a couple of months ago and I told everyone that would listen that you’re gonna be a problem, and I was right. It’s really incredible to, for me it’s hard to play you and to see your growth over the past few months is really cool ... I think we’re gonna play alot more matches, so here’s to that.

Then I’d like to thank my team ... we’ve been through quarantine together. For me, they’re like my family. They’re the ones with me through my training, through my matches, through my, you know, nervous talks before my matches, and I’m really appreciative towards them. So I really want to thank you guys. This one’s for you.

I didn’t play my last grand slam with fans, so just to have this energy, it really means a lot. Thank you for opening your hearts and your arms towards us. For sure I feel like playing a grand slam right now is a super privilege and it’s something I won’t take for granted, so thank you for this opportunity. Thank you to the ball kids, the volunteers, Craig Tiley, the tournament director, everyone for making this tournament possible. Hopefully we’ll be back next year.

I would also like to congratulate her team. Obviously you guys are doing something special. Pushing Naomi every day. She’s only getting better, so congratulations.

“I would like to say thanks to my team. These two guys over there, Michael and Daniel. Without you guys, I wouldn’t be standing here tonight, so thank you very much for everything that you’ve done for me and let’s keep going for more.”
