“He’s not going away as a competitor, and that’s what I like. But he can grab grand slammers too; there’s no doubt about it he’s in the mix; you gotta beat the guy; that’s what I like. He’s not really going to beat himself, so as a competitor, he’s here to stay; it’s great for American tennis. Fritz is going to be one of the guys representing this country for a long time, Macci said on his YouTube video. Macci also wished to see Fritz’s name in the Top 10 rankings.
