“I was definitely surprised and then a little disappointed for sure. We wanted each other to do well and go on a run,”
“We were talking to each other and Nick was saying like, it’s annoying that this is a first-round because we could have played hopefully later if we had the right draw and could have made a good run, but it is what it is.“
“It’s going to be fun. It’ll be interesting out there; he just said, let’s have some fun and play some good tennis, and yeah, it’ll be interesting. I think the atmosphere will be good. It’s a weird dynamic. We haven’t played each other since the juniors and that was weird as well. So now it’s going to be probably a packed house, I don’t know, it’s going to be strange.”
