Tommy: "Its good for them to see me in the quarterfinals. I'm sure my father feels a little guilty about me not being able to play lately. That's the kind of guy he is. It's good for him to see me in the quarterfinals. It might help him in his recovery."
I just want to say that I've been following Tommy's results for the last year and he has really been impressive. From that win in Stuttgart to that fabulous match with Federer in Australia, I think he has matured a lot. Then when I read his interview from yesterday, that did it. His words were so beautiful I started to cry. Theres only been a couple of guys whose interviews I've read when thats happened (Guga and Roger) So yes, I have to agree, he's very beautiful, in more ways than one.
Heres part of what got me: " ...you know, playing tonight against Pete Sampras-one of the greatest player ever-and to beat him, you know, in such a tight match and play in front of so many people that really enjoy the game of tennis and really cheered him on and I got some support. You know this is what it's all about. You know this is why you play or practice every day at a young age. You know these are moments that you dream about and it's just- you can't ask for more."
