Rafa on John Inser: “He is a very dangerous player on any surface, because his serve works well on clay, hard, indoor, everywhere.”
John Isner on Rafa: “I play the greatest clay-court player of all time tomorrow. It’s going to be a big challenge for me. It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’ve played him once before on clay, at Roland Garros, and I took him to five sets. I know I have a game that can disrupt him. It’s going to very tough, but I’m going to go out there and have fun.”
