David Goffin

Roma, Italia

Press Conference

D. GOFFIN/S. Caruso

6-4, 6-1

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. This is a general question about tennis, not so much about your match. It seems that there has been a lot more expression of emotion and personality in tennis with some of the guys these days. There has been more racquet smashing, a few defaults. People are expressing themselves more. Is this an accurate perception? Do you feel this is happening on the tour?

DAVID GOFFIN: You mean during this period of, or in general, like in tennis?

Q. Recently, in general, past year and a half, two, three years.

DAVID GOFFIN: I don't know. Honestly, it's a tough question. There is a lot of answers that you can respond, but I don't know. Maybe we have a period where we have more personality on the court, more characters, players that wants to show more emotion.

I don't know why. If you ask me about, for example, Fognini in Barcelona, I think he has always been like that. Then different players. Sometimes you can see Zverev, for example, when I won against him in Monte-Carlo, he smashed a racquet as well at the end of the match.

I don't know. I don't know why. I didn't notice, to be honest, but it could be because now we have the level is so high, the tension, sometimes the frustration. Then sometimes you have to release the pressure inside, and it could be the racquet, it could be something bad that you can say and sometimes something else.

So it's not my case for the moment, so I cannot answer.
