Rafa on playing Pouille:

He is a great player. He is young. He has all the shots: good serve, good forehand, good backhand. He’s a tough opponent. I practiced with him a couple of times and I played with him long time ago.

I know he’s able to play a very high level. I know it’s going to be a very tough match. I need to be ready for the match. I need to be ready to play my best if I want to keep going.

Rafa won their lone meeting in April 2015 on the clay courts of Monte-Carlo (6-2, 6-1), but Pouille is a completely different player since then and the hard courts of Flushing Meadows are more suited to his game.



  1. Pouille has become Djokovic… At the same time Rafa is not playing as he did against Kuznetsov. If Rafa gets through this he must think about playing ultra aggressive against Novak.

    All of the new and upcoming guys on tour have good defensive skills today so the serve and going to the net is a must….

  2. OK I’m going to stop being a wimp and watch, as looking at the score this could be the last time I see him in this tournament

    • This is very brave from you, Maria! 👍🏼💓💓💓 I can’t stop hoping and praying that this won’t be his last match at this years us open 😞🙏🏼

  3. Fedallica I can’t bear to watch but on a website where it shows every point , what’s going on with Rafa

  4. Let’s hope he can get back on track and quickly . Andy and Stan both had a wobble but managed to pull through so I’m hoping Rafa can do the same. Can’t bear to watch so am watching Tsonga and Sock. If Rafa wins he will have to go up a level as Tsonga is playing great

  5. I am shaking all over. This is killing me. But Rafa: YOU can do this!!!! You can still win this match. Absolutely terrific play by Pouille. Rafas first serve is missing, and his confidence as well.
    But he can do this! ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼
    Vamoooooooooooooos Rafa!!!!!
