Next vs. Nadal

Talking about the match, Rafa commented “Tomorrow is a tough match against a player that is for sure one of the best players of the world. He played well today against a tough opponent like Milos Raonic, so it will be a tough match for me. I need to be playing very well tomorrow, and it’s an opportunity to play against a great player. I’m excited about it.”
