“It was a positive victory for me. Obviously I didn’t play my best match, but after the defeat in Monte-Carlo, the next match on court was never going to be easy. I am happy with the way I fought and proud of the victory today.
The victories are more important when you haven’t played well. I feel happy to be through on a tough day for the top seeds. I need to improve everything. I’m working every day to play more aggressively. I need to find the feeling of being dominant in the points.
I feel that sometimes I’m hitting balls from good positions and I’m not able to create the right spaces, to find winners. I need to try and find that for the next match,” said Rafael Nadal.
