Tough, spring interview at the Masters 1000 in Miami where he also failed the last step.

Strong without being particularly impressive, he particularly benefited during the first two rounds of a lack of match against Mottet, who then went through completely from his first round of 16 at a Grand Slam, making plenty of unforced errors.

The frustration soon triumphed over the French.
