On Thursday, Rafael Nadal will play his second match at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome against No. 16 seed John Isner.
Rafa on John Isner: “He’s difficult to play against. You dont have a lot of control on the things that are going to happen. If he serves well then you are in trouble. I have to play with no mistakes when I’m serving.”
