"No, yeah, he's someone that I have a lot of admiration for on and off the tennis court.

"He is the epitome of a fighter, who goes out and gives their all every single day. That's what I aspire to be like. It really helps me because I can push myself; he helps me do that. I'm a very lucky girl."

She added: "He is probably one of the hardest-working guys out there. I'm very lucky to be in the position I am, that I get to see it day in, day out. I have so much respect for what he does."
