He is also friends with Roger Federer, Goran Ivanisevic, Jan-Mike Gambill, Paradorn Srichaphan, Guga Kuerten, Arnaud Di Pasqual, Andy Ram, Max Mirnyi, and gets along very well with Sebastien Grojean, Fabrice Santoro, Alex Corretja, Albert Costa, Mark Philippoussis, Ollie Rochus, Lleyten and Kim, James Blake, Hicham Arazi, Guillermo Canas,...
