I was on the edge today, as I was warming up I felt like I didn’t have much energy and it bothered me a little at the start of the game. I tried to pump myself up and with each game I tried to push myself a little harder and eventually I managed to play the key points a little better which I got to. advantage.

“Greg tends to play well against me. He has also been improving tremendously, his results have been very good – he has had a number of difficult draws recently but he has been playing well and had a very good win. today, so I know I need to be on my highest form. He runs the ball down, takes a lot of funny pictures and attacks well too. I expect a good game. ”
