“I’m just a tennis player. I’m not here at the open for my country. I just want to play my tennis. It’s my job to do my very best. If in the past I’ve had to lie, now I want to say that actually I haven’t been comfortable doing that. Because if you’ve lied your first lie, then you’ll have to lie many more times to cover up that first lie. And I really don’t want to do that anymore. I know many people are going to start hating me for speaking the truth, but does it matter anymore? I’ve finally found my own happiness.”
