Dreams do come true if you keep believing in yourself. Anything is possible.
I mean, obviously, a lot of people know me around the world. Kids know me.
People want to hear what I have to say and respect what I say.
I feel like I've started a new chapter in my life, and I need to leave the past behind.
Let me say that the path I did take for a brief period of my life was not of reckless drug use, hurting others, but it was a path of quiet rebellion, of a little experimentation of a darker side of my confusion in a confusing world, lost in the midst of finding my identity.
I do still have some of the experience from playing, but it's been so long since I've been out in those quarters, semis, finals, the important final matches, just against the top players.
But, you know, I just want to play well and have fun playing well.
You know, I'm confident before I go out and play a match that I know, you know, I've put in the work and like I feel confident that I am going to go out there and play well.
To win Grand Slams you have to be in the right frame of mind, the right physical shape.
I had an instinct before and maybe now I don't have that instinct as much as knowing what to do, what shots to hit, where to place the ball, things like that.
I'm happy with what I've done but it's a challenge to try to win more.
I know there is much mystery, much question to what happened, and I must also say, many lies.
It wasn't my tennis that made me lose, it was a lot of different things going on, high drama, high emotion.
Yes, I made mistakes by rebelling, by acting out in confused ways.
