Another day, another marathon for Rafael Nadal.
King of Clay overcame a strong challenge from Andy Murray to win 1-6, 6-3, 7-5 and reach the semi-finals in Rome.
“I really didn’t feel like I was playing bad in the first set. Probably tactically (it was) not good but inside the energy was really good. Tonight I didn’t have any negative thoughts for the whole match. … I closed the match at the first opportunity. The physical part is really good, the mental part too, and my tennis is going to be there sooner or later. This was one of my best matches in a while,” Rafa said.
Our champion will face Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov on Saturday about 8 pm CEST. VAMOS RAFA!
