A fun/surprising anecdote to tell us about him? …I call him mister “I don’t known “, because at the beginning of every question, his answer is “I don’t know..."

What do you tell him before entering the court ? Believe on you, and respect the game , play simple 








The concept was really great for me: that's a unique experience to discover the daily life of a top 10 on a tournament. 

I could discover how Janko's organizing his days, how he prepares, how implicated he is. And always 200% involved in his trainings !

He gave me some advice on my game, especially on my service and my footwork. 

It's not the first time I've been told this, but it's even more effective when it comes from a top 10 !
