Rafael Nadal is rarely 100% happy and probably this is why he has become such a legend.
The King of Clay has defeated Peter Gojowczyk 6-3 6-4 in 1 hour and 45 minutes (see match stats), but he wasn’t convinced by his tennis so far (probably he has forgot he trashed Richard Gasquet in the first round 6-4 6-0).
Nadal: I need to improve
Rafa commented “In general I need to improve. It’s obvious. My serve worked well today. But in general I need more rhythm on the legs, more rhythm on the shots. I am playing okay, trying to not miss a lot, trying to play with not too many risks. That’s what I did today. It’s the only way to have matches, only way to have rhythm.”
The quarters vs. Klizan
Head to head is 2-0 for Rafa that has defeated Klizan both times with the same result 4-6 6-3 6-3 6-3 in Wimbledon 2014 and at the Roland Garros in 2013.
