Status: Professional tennis player. Member of Australian Davis Cup team. Currently ranked no. 59 in ATP.

Ht: 6-5 Wt: 200

DOB: October 21, 1992 In: Stuttgart, Germany

First Tennis Memory: “When I was young I picked up a racquet and have been playing since. I was probably eight. It was a physical, popular thing to play tennis, to hit a ball. My first memory.”

Tennis Inspirations: “Roger and Rafa. Looking up to them the last five years has kickstarted me and made me want to play tennis. And I’m sure for a lot of people as well I think.”

Last Book Read: “Harry Potter [laughs]. Going back ages. But the Harry Potters were interesting to me and I think I managed to read the last four which is great [smiles].”

Greatest Sports Moment: “Wimbledon quarterfinals.”

Most Painful Moment: “[Smiles] Wimbledon quarterfinals (lost to Djokovic in four sets in 2011).”

Favorite Tournament: “I love Melbourne Park, the Australian Open. I love Wimbledon. And Miami is also really nice.”

Which Match Did You Feel At Your Best: “Probably the match I played Robin Soderling at Wimbledon in the third round.”

Closest Tennis Friends: “[Laughs] My dad, my team I think.”

Funniest Player Encountered: “(Sergiy) Stakhovsky is one. He’s a funny guy, nice and chilled. He’s always in the locker room cracking jokes, he makes the players laugh. And he’s a nice guy.”

Embarrassing Tennis Memory: “I’ve had a few quick round exits, like the U.S. Open.”

Strangest Match: “There’s been a few weird ones. I think when I played Alex (Dolgopolov) last year in the Australian Open third round, that was a bit weird for me. It was a big match for us both to play.”

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: “Cookies and cream.”

Favorite Sport Outside Tennis: “Basketball.”

Three Athletes You Like To Watch And Follow: “Michael Jordan. Usain Bolt. And Lionel Messi.”

Why Do You Love Playing Tennis: “It’s just the one-on-one competitiveness, where I drive myself. I grew up playing team sports but I wasn’t really into that and I think tennis was the right choice for me, being one-on-one. I’d rather do it myself, I think.”

People Qualities Most Admired: “Just you try your best whatever you do. Just try to give 100% towards people.”
