Currently, pre-season and I enjoy challenges, sometimes four or more weeks to exercise continuously to correct Černý is the chance to lay the cornerstone and acquire new things.
What have you learned new?
I discovered rock climbing for me. Was here in Berlin at the climbing gym. Although I have animal muscle, but it was great. To overcome fear, to rise into the air and to reach its limits.
Are there any other sports that you leave?
I like hockey for looking at, because I really like the dynamics and action. I love to go to Florida for deep sea fishing. This relaxes me in the head and makes really great fun.

just slipped out of the top 30 in the world rankings. The next goal is once the Top 20

still dream of one day, the world No. 1 to be. Nothing has changed since London and of course the desire for an Olympic medal has been added, which I unfortunately missed in August so scarce. I will make it up in Rio 2016 necessarily because I want to wear the medal for my country around the neck.
4th in London, you still angry?
Sure, if one was so close to it. It was just a great experience that has made feel like Rio. And since I'll get my medal.

Pack your suitcase. I hate the bags in and unpack. Because of the jet lag is a breeze.

Over the Internet.

Do you already have plans for the time after your career?
No. It can happen so much in life. I live more in the now. Watch step by step and I will of course continue to play tennis for a long time. I do so on long as I enjoy it, it does not have other plans for now.?

Probably on 31 December, in Australia or New Zealand. That is, I will most likely sit on a plane for Christmas.
