Rafa on playing Fognini:

I know him very well and he knows me very well.

We played a few times and he’s beaten me a couple of times, too. It’s a tough match.

He’s playing well, so it will be a good challenge. I need to play my best, keep playing aggressive like I did today and hope to have my chances.

Rafa leads his FedEx ATP Head2Head with the Italian 7-3, but the pair has split their past six matches. Their previous encounter in Miami was a one-sided affair, with Nadal recording a swift 6-2, 6-2 win in their 2014 fourth-round clash.



  1. Yes I think we all are from what was said before – but I’m going onto the latest thread vy as this one has lots of posts. See you there maybe?

    • Sure, Susie. See you there. I’m watching Rafa’s post-match interviews now, espn + skysports versions. 🙂
