Paul and the semi-final loss against Djokovic at the Australian Open

The American recalled the match with Djokovic at the press conference. “I am very happy with the level expressed and the result achieved in Australia.

But when I think about the last match in Melbourne, I am totally devastated and not happy with this match. I left the tournament thinking, “What do I have to do to win a match like this?”.

Novak delivers a pretty insane level. Paul said he handles every situation well and all the important moments. “If I really want to take the next step, I’m going to have to improve a lot. It’s something I’m working on.

I think he’s mentally the best ever. In these matches you will notice the difference. I don’t want to be affected by expectations. Obviously, the pressure you put on yourself increases. Every day I make big changes.

This is the feeling I get when I look at my standings over the past four years. It has been slow and steady progress. I fixed some aspects of my game. I think I played a lot of great games compared to the past.
