Here's what he has posted in his website today:
I don’t usually like to get involved in anything tabloid related, but given the seriousness of the matter I would like to straighten things out a bit.I'm not sure what kind of comment falsely reported by the media publishers in Argentina.
It appears that some Argentinean media publishers have released a statement directed to me in regards to a ‘comment’ that apparently I made about their politics.
Well, I would like to say that those comments are completely false and my team is now going to get involved to try to track the source of these lies. We are going to take the necessary steps to stop this from happening again.
I am the kind of person that doesn’t like to get involved in politics, not local, nor national, and specially not international. That’s the way it is, and the way it will remain.
I really hope that all the Argentinean people that read the article know that it wasn’t me who said those things but instead it was someone else who just wanted to take advantage of my name.
Thank you everyone!
But one thing for sure, the heat of Davis Cup final has begun!
