    I have always been your fan. I just like your all American style, your personality, and the way you play. Now that you stop playing ATP Tour, I don't know whom shall I watch.
    I still watch you play as guest-player for exhibition or charity events.
    Keep up with your health and your many interests.

    I am very proud to be your fan. Your commitment to improve your game and your dedication to the US Davis Cup team are very much appreciated. Observing how you PUSH YOURSELF to win matches tells me you are definitely on the comeback trail. I think your keys to being a successful player is to train hard; have a sound strategy going into a match; have backup plans when things don't seem to work out; always make your opponents pay if they want to have a shot at beating you. Last but not least, remember to celebrate your own presence on the court and enjoy being out there competing as a professional. Billions of us are just home watching you on TV and admiring your talents. Best wishes always.
    On a final note: Thank you for the establishment of your Foundation. "Contributing to changing people's life is endearingly rewarding."
