The US Open was appropriate in its finish. We had Rafole Doubles starting us off in Toronto, and it finished accordingly.
The Oz Open has gone one better, as it is wont to do.
Q. Now is it hard to balance the friendship and the professional rivalry or do you achieve that?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yes, I sent him a message yesterday after his semifinal saying like, Perth final, because we practiced in Perth a couple times this year. We had fun. We played football there. He won, unfortunately.
It’s fun. It’s been a fun couple of weeks. I think we, as well, reconnected a little bit with the friendship in the last 12 months.
Well, we have to forget about all that when we step on the court. It’s all business. I’m sure he’s going to be very eager to win a first Grand Slam title.
See you tomorrow night, lads. Bring on the bromance.
