I tried to stay in the moment and enjoy it. In the end, it’s just a game, even if it’s a lot we play for, said the 23-year-old, who is ranked 93rd in the world.

When you play someone like Vasek who is so good at attacking it doesn’t bother me, especially with my toolbox, it doesn’t give me many options other than trying to counter.
