How long ago did you start playing?
Thirty years ago. I took up tennis because I was a bad golfer.
How was today’s game?
It was hot and sweaty. I won, actually.
Did you warm up before playing?
Yes, with 20 minutes of stretching. I did dynamic stretching, in which you move your muscles as you stretch.
What did you eat before playing?
Nothing, but I’m drinking an energy drink called Xtend.
What was your best shot?
Of course, lots of them. I make so many mistakes that it’s difficult to pick out just one.
Will you do anything different the next time you play?
