Were you easy to coach when you were young?

Once you get to a certain age you start to know how you like to train, the sort of stuff that you like to do, and before I started working with the guys I’m working with now we kind of sat down and I told them the stuff I like doing, the stuff I didn’t like doing, and the stuff that I wanted from them and then they obviously, so now its, whereas before, when I was younger I didn’t really, you don’t really have any input, it’s just your coach, because you need to be told exactly what to do, how much to train, when to train, when to warm up, you know, all that sort of stuff, so it’s a little bit different now.

What is your training schedule?

I probably spend 2 hours a day on the court, 2 hours in the gym and then you know, on top of that, I do a lot of things in terms of, I have to see the physio most days to make sure you know, I’ve got no sort of, aches and pains, and make sure I’m eating at the right times so that, and the right things so that I can train properly so, I mean, although its kind of really 4 hours of exercise, there’s a lot of other things you kind of spend probably about 10 until 5, on most days your kind of on the go.
