Let me say that the path I did take for a brief period of my life was not of reckless drug use, hurting others, but it was a path of quiet rebellion, of a little experimentation of a darker side of my confusion in a confusing world, lost in the midst of finding my identity.
Yes, I made mistakes by rebelling, by acting out in confused ways.
People want to hear what I have to say and respect what I say.
I feel like I've started a new chapter in my life, and I need to leave the past behind.
But, you know, I just want to play well and have fun playing well.
Now a lot has changed and I can separate a lot of things.
Tennis is what I do and is part of who I am.
I know there is much mystery, much question to what happened, and I must also say, many lies.
This is the hardest thing I've ever done. The rehab has not gone as expected.
I mean, I feel like just a new person completely.
To win Grand Slams you have to be in the right frame of mind, the right physical shape.
Coming back after the layoff, I wasn't really sure what to expect.
I just want to get to the level where I can say that that's my level, just try to play well, get up there.
What I want out of tennis is not necessarily just winning.
I had an instinct before and maybe now I don't have that instinct as much as knowing what to do, what shots to hit, where to place the ball, things like that.
