I really think you are an amazing talent. I never thought I’m going to say so many nice things about you, considering the relationship! OK, it’s officially a bromance!

And thank the umpires and ball girls and ball boys, i know we have a tough relationship at times. I am so tired. Our team has played so much tennis.
