Nicolas Mahut: Davis Cup? "I'll say World Cup" – Davis Cup



"Tell us your last hours …
It was fast. We celebrated in the locker room (the title of the Masters) before boarding a plane waiting to try to get here quickly (in Madrid). The night was short, but at least we could sleep in Madrid. Good for healing.

Ideally in a way of thinking?
Inevitable. We were a little tired because we didn't get much sleep the night before the final. But it is easier to reach by victory and by way. We have a day to put ourselves in the bathroom. It'il be quick. Altitude, new land, we will take some criteria. There are minor similarities with Kristina (Mladenovic), who won the Masters and Fed Cup titles, although she played singles in the Fed Cup. We'il try to find out what he did.

You were critical to this new format …
Nostalgic and confused, because when I enter the stadium I see World Cup marks, Davis Cup marks, I really don't know which competition to play. But ultimately, no matter what, we're here to represent the French team, and this is the most important for me. Personally, I always put the French team on top of everything.

Is that a contest?
World Cup. This isn't the Davis Cup. But we are all motivated to play. You should leave a chance.

“We can either win or lose the team there. Extra pressure "

The fans' association has announced it will boycott the incident. What inspires you?
This is a shame for us. Their support made us very good. We can understand them. It is hoped that there will be a lot of people. I hope this pressure is a success for them to come back next year.

I have a strong curiosity around this format. What are you waiting for
I want to feel the same tremor. Too much desire, but uncertainty. Please respond within 24 hours.

With Pierre-Hugues Herbert, emotions always look good …
Even better, even if the year is difficult. There were smart staff around us as well. We felt the story wasn't over. We have big goals starting this week.

You feel a certain pressure here: it is a double-point identifier, and can we imagine that you are the favorites of all matches?
We come with so much confidence and expectation. The double point was predetermined. The only difference is that we can either win or lose the team. That's an extra pressure. But all our experiences, certainly, should serve us in these moments. I hope this trust is brought. "
