Rafael Nadal: “I did things well, things that of course I could do better but happy for the victory. The goal was done today.”
“I think tonight has been a very positive evening for me, winning in straight sets and great news for everything. For me, just to focus, to try to be ready for what’s next, which is going to be more difficult.”
“Of course, when I was younger I was able to run everywhere, now I need to have better shots,”
“The backhand is an important shot for me. When I’m playing well, the court opens up for me, I can produce angles with the forehand. When the backhand is working well, I play much better.”
“My back, not under control, honestly. No, I am keep doing the things that I can. If you see my motion on the serve is different than what I would like. But I am trying to find solutions every day. I just keep fighting for find a solution."
“We are doing everything possible to try to be better. So still alive, still hope to be better and to try to be competitive. Let's see. Gonna be a good test against Norrie.”
“He came to the tournament winning the week before, so Norrie was able to beat him. Lefty. Good player. He has experience on the tour already."
“Gonna be the toughest test, without a doubt. I need to be playing at high level if I want to keep having chances to be through. And I am looking forward to try to make that happen.”
