How would you grade your most recent win on a scale of 1 to 10?
I’d give it a 7 or 8. Because I didn’t get the finish until the 2nd round and lost the 1st round, but he was a Very seasoned vet I’m proud to have finished.
How does it feel to kick off 2019 with a big win? How important was this victory for you?
