What kind of influence did my parents have on my life? Well, they had the most influence. These are the people who are closest to me. My parents are very positive people. They've been supportive. They're always there.
I try to stay as private as possible; I know that's difficult, especially playing here in New York, but I make an attempt at it.
Surround yourself with good people. People who are going to be honest with you and look out for your best interests.
I think there's something wrong with me - I like to win in everything I do, regardless of what it is. You want to race down the street, I want to beat you. If we're playing checkers, I want to win. You beat me, it's going to bother me. I just enjoy competition.
