Which player has recently said that top 50 is not enough and that they want to be higher
One particular player has come out very recently and stated that they aren’t excited by their top 50 ranking. This player recently lost at Indian Wells. Here is what this player had to say.
“To be honest I didn’t think of the Australian Open as a big deal, or to be ranked around 50 is a big deal because it’s not where I want to go”. ”
“I want to go further”. “Of course it was a great success but I want to keep improving”.
“This is not where I want to stop, I want to keep going higher, so that’s my mindset that there’s still a long way to go”.
This player also made a comment about the key to success and the team aspect of it.
“I think there is always more than one person behind success”. “It takes a team effort and also I have to be open and able to learn”.

What player wishes for all players to be able to choose their walkout song- and what song did they choose?
One particular top 10 player has proposed that tennis start introducing each individual player by their own chosen ‘walkout song’- a song that a player walks into the arena with. It is a phenomenon common in the WWE- but tennis has been slow to catch on to any new ideas. Here is what this player had to say.
“I wish players could choose their walkout song when they walk on the court”. “I think that would be a cool little thing to add”. “That would be the one thing I would change for tennis”.
This player then also added which song they would like to walk out on to court with.
“Today I was listening to “Love Me” by Lil Wayne and Drake”. “I don’t know if that’s the most appropriate song, so I wouldn’t choose that”. “I would say probably ‘Icon’ by Jaden Smith or ‘Grinding All My Life’ by Nipsey Hussle”.
“Yeah, I’d say probably one of those two songs”. “Probably since we’re in California, probably some Nipsey Hussle”.
