Rafael Nadal: “I won an important match today against a tough opponent. I was able to find a way to play my best tennis in the moment that I really needed, no? Something very important for me. A lot of confidence after that.

Is not my mindset to come here and just thinking about lose a set going to be a disaster for me. That's part of the game. We are facing the best players of the world. The thing that matter is how you recover from a set lost.

I have been in a tricky situation, 4-3 for him in the third set, one-set-all. Then was the moment to calm myself, to think about the things that I was doing well on practices, just to try to make it happen.

That was the moment to make it happen because was a tough, tough moment. I'm very proud that in that moment probably the best level of tennis that I had I showed.

Not many mistakes, hitting a lot of winners, starting to hit the forehand down-the-line, playing more angles, playing longer with my forehand cross, returning a little bit better. My serve I think started to work better in that third set. But it's normal.”
