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.



  1. The points were in your favor Rafa and I am thrilled to no end. Glad you ignored that bad karma and the doubting Thomases!
    Get some rest for your match vs Gael. You should have an easier time with him.
