    "Each player, they ought to take a seat and have a meeting. They ought to concur, 'this is the manner by which we play Nadal, this is the way we play Federer, this is the manner by which we play Djokovic'.

    "At that point, all attempt to play them a similar way. The correct way.

    "You have to make them feel dreadful, cut their level down, so that at long last some fortunate person is holding up and he will beat one of them.

    "I used to loathe it when folks did that to me... drag my tennis down, debilitate me, and that is the thing that you have to do.

    "The part of the locker-room is to give everyone a shot. Get the best players to play more awful - in light of the fact that that is the thing that they will do to you."

    "Alright, some folks will take one for the group... will lose, however will play in a way that debilitates these folks for another person.

    "Robin Haase took one for the group today. In the main set he played like he needed to play, and lost 6-1.
