Last time in Europe, you were the champion of the U.S. Open, how far do you see yourself from that performance?
RN: 2013 was a magic year and I was playing at the highest level that I’ve ever played, winning three tournaments in a row. It’s something very difficult; not that many players did that in the history of tennis. This year is a little bit different story, but I feel better than what I felt during the year and I feel like I’m closer than I was before to be playing the way I want to be playing. In terms of confidence, every time I feel more calm, I feel more confident about the things I’m doing. I just need to keep doing what I’m doing to compete well here, but it’s not the end of the year for me. The U.S. Open is another chance and I hope to be competitive to play well, win the tournament and if not, then we continue to the next event. It’s important for me to finish the year in the Top 8 to enter the next year with the possibility of being a high seed in the beginning.
