Same court, same players, different result, as World No. 1 Rafael Nadal avenged his 2012 defeat to Lukas Rosol with a 4-set win; 4-6, 7-6(8), 6-4, 6-4. Congratulations Rafa!
Rafa after his victory: “I never play for revenge; every match is different. Today was a normal match: I try to win. My goal is not Rosol. My goal is to play as well as possible – doesn’t if it’s against Rosol or against any other player who has beaten me in the past. I had a good answer after big trouble in the first and second sets and I think I finished the match playing great.”
I knew I had to keep fighting, waiting for my moment. I made a few mistakes but he was serving very well then the second set was very important. Against Rosol two sets down it would have been very dangerous.”
