September 26, Beijing time. With the confidence of winning the US Open, can Tim, who came to Paris, complete a breakthrough on a better venue? In the past four years, the Austrians have reached the semi-finals in the French Open and advanced to the final twice.
"I feel good to be here because I have achieved such a big goal. In a way, anything that appears now is a reward. On the other hand, I want to be the best in every game. Well, especially the French Open. I like it here. I was satisfied with the conditions during the first training yesterday. I tried not to think too much about the US Open. I saw it as a new event and a new challenge."
Speaking of his opponent Nadal in the semi-finals, Tim said: "As long as Rafa stands healthy on the court, he is the favorite to win the championship. He has won 12 championships in the past, which is really unbelievable. But this year there are. The slight changes make the ball different from the past, which is a bit difficult for him."
If Tim can win the French Open this year, he will surpass Nadal to the second place in the world.
