British tennis player Daniel Evans -31 years old and currently number 31 in the world ranking- acknowledged in the press conference this Thursday that he admires Swiss Roger Federer not only because of his level on a court, but also because of his humility and human warmth in each training session they shared together.
“You do not feel strange when you talk to him, because he is a relaxed person with whom I can talk about most things. Also, his team has always been very good to me and we have had talks at the end of practice as I do it with any player, “said the born in Birmingham, England, and champion of an ATP title (Melbourne 2, this year).
Evans, who lost to Italian Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinals of the Queen’s ATP 500, will be the best Briton in the rankings heading into Wimbledon: “I don’t want to set myself expectations. I just want to enjoy the grass tournaments and I hope to be able to play my tennis. If I can manage and play well on this surface, the victories will come.
