I was so excited they put it because they put it in the match before I guess when I played (Martina) Hingis. It's something about, 'I'm so excited, I gonna like it,' or whatever. I was pretty pumped. I love this song...I mean, I love the music. I hope one day we can have like in basketball match the same thing on this music. I think this will be great for crowd, for tennis and for everything."
