Rafael Nadal: Always surprised when Novak loses

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.
