YOUNES EL AYNAOUI
"It was a load off my mind to get the all clear from the specialist after my MRI scan last week and since then I've been able to fully focus on preparing for Munich. There's no doubt about the fact that it's been difficult to play with the same level of confidence I had prior to surgery. I was forced to miss the start of the year and since returning I haven't managed to win as many matches as I would have liked. However, it's a natural reaction and the challenge is to try and break the cycle, which is why I've accepted a wildcard into Munich in order to try and get a few matches under my belt. I've been hitting the ball well and the weather has been great in London so I've spent a lot of time on the clay in the last week and I can't wait to get out to Germany."
