Second Serve


By Chris Oddo | @TheFanChild | Tuesday March 12, 2024

Indian Wells – Tommy Paul is after titles in 2024.

After taking out Ugo Humbert on Stadium 2 on Monday at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, the 17th-ranked American opened up about his goals for 2024.

“My goal coming into this year was to win titles,” he said “I made, I think, two or three finals last year. Never won the tournament. So this year my main goal is to win tournaments.”

Fritz has already doubled his career title count in 2024, winning the Dallas title in February.

“I got one title, and I want more,” he said. “I mean, I want to leave the tournament with a win. That’s the best feeling in tennis, and it doesn't happen too often – that's the goal, and that's what will eventually break me into wherever I want to be.”

More Aggression the Key

We asked Paul if there was anything specific that he believed would take him to titletown.

“Playing much more aggressive tennis,” was his response. “We've been working on that. This week, I don't know if it's because maybe it's a little slower or less bouncy or whatever, but I've been able to attack and play very attacking tennis in my first two matches. So hopefully we can keep that going, and I think that's a very important thing for me."
