Spanish tennis player Feliciano Lopez commented on the victory over Serb Filip Krajinovic at the start of “Masters” in Paris, and also shared his expectations from the confrontation with Rafael Nadal.
“I was incredibly lucky. Sometimes we take some things for granted. But now that I’m 39 years old, I appreciate every winning match much more. Many things have come together, and thanks to that I can play in major tournaments and remain competitive.
The meeting with Nadal is a gift for me. It is a pity that there will be no spectators on the stands. However, in any case it will be great to fight with one of the best players in history and his friend.
Rafael is a great champion, he had a great time with Roland Garros and will be an unconditional favorite,” the press service of ATP quotes Lopez.
