“The feeling is great, even though I lost. This is probably the best tennis I have played. I trained hard, both mentally and physically. My hard work is paying off, I see the potential for improving my game,” said the Japanese player.
He also spoke about possible participation in the Olympic Games that are being held in Tokyo.
“Currently, there are two tennis players from Japan ahead of me. At the same time, qualifying for the Olympics is not the most important thing to me. Now, my biggest focus is on mental strengthening. As for the Games, it’s hard to talk about that. Nothing is still known, it seems that everyone is lost. However, I think that is normal because of the whole situation, and it is difficult for ordinary people to concentrate on sports while things are happening regarding Covid-19. I don’t know what the protocol will be,” concluded Daniel.
