Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal commented on reaching the semifinals of the tournament in Monaco.
“The first set was very difficult both physically and psychologically. It was hard, I lost the first three games in the pitch. But at the right moment I found my game. With the score of 1/4 I was lucky. He twice could lead 5/1, and it’s almost impossible to recoup such an account. I was lucky that I avoided this and then added it. I am very glad that I passed on. For me, one more way to the semi-finals means a lot. Overall very happy.
The next semi-final in Monte Carlo means a lot to me. Guido? He spends a great season, wins many matches on the ground. In Sao Paulo, he was in the final, in Buenos Aires, reached the semi-finals. He won many matches in a row, and this gives confidence.
Whenever Novak loses, it seems strange. Why? Because he is a very strong player. But we are all human, aren’t we? Every day you play against a new opponent, who also wants to win. That’s how sports work. Yes, probably, Novak played a bad game today. When he won the second set, it seemed that Daniil was tired and the match would go to Djokovic. Nevertheless, Medvedev had a great third game. In general, he plays great throughout the tournament and has already spent a few cool matches, “the Tour press service quotes Nadal.
