The rating difference this year is the largest ever between us since we started, in 1999, but as I told Jose, it doesn't matter that much to me. He knows me over the chess board better than anybody and I expect a good fight from him, even a defeat for me it's very possible, so I will try my best as usual and see how this goes.
I believe in psychology and better skill, and we don't always have it, so to me this match is as uncertain as any.
I just want to fight in chess against my best opponent and my best friend at the same time, because I know for sure that we will have a great time together, just like always.
OK, let's do this!
