He became the third Spaniard to reach the men’s quarter-finals on Monday, joining Tommy Robredo (who had upset former world number one Roger Federer) and David Ferrer.

“It was very tough tonight with the humid conditions, I was sweating too much,” said Rafa after three hours and 12 minutes on court.”

“I had chances in the first set but couldn’t take them. I feel lucky to be through as it was physically tough.

“But as the match went on I felt more comfortable on my serve.”

Next up for Rafa is Tommy Robredo against whom he has a 6-0 record.

“He’s playing great and he has had similar circumstances like me in coming back from injury.”

“He has come back and is having an amazing tournament. He has beaten Federer so he will bring that confidence into the match.”
