You’re the first tennis player to wear the OnlyFans logo on the court. What’s been the reaction?

When I signed with OnlyFans I thought my friends were going to say, “what the f*** are you doing?” But no, it’s all fine!

In fact, they are all quite interested in OnlyFans right now. So they created their own accounts and everything.

Everything is cool with my team, and the team that works with me at OnlyFans is very cool. It’s perfect.

What does a match day look like for you?

Normally, I like to do two warm ups – two 40-minute tennis sessions – and after, I try to stay focused on my match. That means, not spending too much time on my phone, or on OnlyFans before my match.

Maybe after the match! [laughs]

What do you eat before a match?

Of course, no pizza and no burgers before the match.

I have Crohn’s disease. It’s something that’s quite important to me because I have to be careful with what I eat.

Is there a song you listen to get you hyped up?

I think I’m a really weird person because I have everything on my phone. I can listen to some rap or some old French song—like a very, very calm one.

My playlist depends on the day and how I’m feeling. I mean, I have everything.

How would you describe your sense of style?

Most of the time I’m dressed casually because I mean, I’m doing sports all day long.

But when I can go out, I like beautiful clothes. Although I try to not buy everything I want, because then I wouldn’t have enough money to pay my coach!

What’s in your tennis bag right before a match?

  • Six rackets
  • All my drinks… for during and after the match.
  • A lot of clothes… Like my cap, and maybe some OnlyFans clothes.
  • Shoes
  • Phone

All the classics, I would say.

Do you have a good luck charm?

I had one before, but I stopped bringing it last year. And that was my best year so far.

It was something really weird that my grandma gave me, like a tooth from an elephant or something like that.

After you leave the court, what do you get up to?

It depends if I lost or if I won. If I win, it’s easier to talk with my coach.

If I lose, sometimes it’s difficult!

Then I do ten minutes on the bike, and then I shower and go to see the physiotherapist. I try to eat 40-45 minutes after the match.

Then I go back to my hotel, and just watch Netflix.

What’s something surprising about you?

Last year, during the US Open, I played against Djokovic on the center court night session. That was my biggest match on the biggest court in the world.

During the press sessions, I talked about my Crohn’s disease. I think that was the right moment to talk about it because nobody knew that I had it.

Now I’m trying to talk about it more openly, because there are a lot of tennis players and athletes who have Crohn’s.

At the age of 13 or 14, my doctor said, “You have Crohn’s disease. You have to stop playing tennis to be healthy.”

And that was a difficult time of my life.

Anything else you want to share?

In tennis, sometimes it’s tough because when we lose, we receive a thousand messages that say “F*** you! F*** you, you lost your match!”

So I would just like to say thank you to all the people who support me, who send me very kind messages on OnlyFans.

And if you have any questions, send me a message. I will answer. OnlyFans Icon
