I’m a little bit older and I understand the emotions better, I think, than many years ago. So I think in that way it's easier, but also probably a little bit more emotional.
Today I was watching videos of my opponent playing, so I was going in confident. I'd been practicing well. I'd mentally prepared myself, as well.
The career Slam is the best gift I could have received at this time in my career. It wasn’t a Cinderella story--I worked really hard, a lot of tough days. I couldn’t compete at a high level without a lot of pain.
A lot of people wouldn't even have the opportunity to even come back, so I'm grateful for this opportunity. With each day that passes, that means I have another chance. If the sun comes up, I have a chance.
Yesterday a Wimbledon official said: "There are no rules regarding tattoos for players," adding wryly: "There might be if they had a huge advertising slogan tattooed across a part of their anatomy... but otherwise not."
