Nadal: He was playing well at the beginning

Rafa commented “What happened is that in the first set, he played well, he played confidently, and I did not play very well. I was a little nervous about the match because of the match that I lost last week in Rio. As the match went on, I started to feel a little bit better. Winning the first set was vital, and from then, everything got better… I did things well in the second set.”
