Some coaches would study his schedule and start asking why he was not playing more clay tournaments, but for him, he never thought of himself to be a clay-court player. He has pointed out that he had some of his best results on that surface, but he had performed well on hard courts, too, and qualified for Wimbledon and excelled in the grass Challengers prior to that. All that made him confident on those surfaces and he has felt blessed thinking himself to have been a fine all-round player.
