Q: What are you like in your everyday life?
A: Actually I really love making jokes and having fun. I am very easy to get along with off the court.
Q: You’ve now got many younger female fans after the Rio Olympics; how do you feel about this?
A: Of course I am very happy and very thankful for their support and recognition. I hope I can use my good performance in return for their love and support.
Q: Do you mind negative comments on the internet?
A: I did mind in the past and frankly speaking I am a bit affected by others’ opinions. More fans following me means more news about me. So I have to adjust my mindset. There are many fans loving me. There are still some fans wanting me to be better and to continue improving.
Q: How do you usually release the pressure?
A: Sometimes running, singing or yelling at some place with nobody there. Sometimes I hang out with friends for dinner and some beer.
