Our champ and Kuznetsov will be going head-to-head for the second time in their careers. They previously faced each other last year in Ronald Garros, where Rafa won easily in three sets; 6-1, 6-3, 6-2.

Rafa on playing Kuznetsov:

He’s a player that hits the ball so strong and has good shots from the baseline so it’s going to be a tough one.

I need to keep playing like this, like I did today, and I hope to take my chances.
