Rafa Roundup: June 8, 2013


“Sunday’s match is much more bigger for us. Today I told Rafael ‘it’s a shame that today we are very happy but tomorrow we have to forget this and we are worried about the next match.”

Victory on Sunday would take Nadal past the likes of Pete Sampras and Roger Federer, both seven-time winners at Wimbledon, as the only eight-time champion of a Grand Slam in men’s tennis. The only time Ferrer has beaten Nadal on clay was their first match in 2004, when Nadal was 18, but the man from Valencia takes some encouragement from their last meeting in Rome last month.

Nadal now holds a 58-1 record at Roland Garros, but Ferrer is the only player to not have dropped a set en route to the final this year.
