Rafa on playing Sascha Zverev:
It will be a high quality match. He’s a potential Grand Slam winner and a big talent. He’s improving in every moment. He’s a player that can be a future world No.1 so it will be a big challenge for me. I’ll need to play my best.
Rafa and Zverev will be facing each other for the second time. When they met in Indian Wells last year, our champ saved one match point in a 6-7(8), 6-0, 7-5 win. Zverev had led 5-2 in the deciding set.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
