Rafa on playing Ramos-Vinolas:
He’s playing better than ever. He’s winning huge matches during the whole week. He’s playing with big confidence, with great spirit and fight, overcoming tough situations in every match and playing a high level of tennis all the time.
I know that I need to be at my best to keep having chances, to fight for another title here. That’s what I am looking for.
Should Rafa win the final, he will become the first man in the Open Era to win 10 titles in one tournament. The win tomorrow will also give Rafa his 50th clay court title, breaking his record of most clay court titles in the open era (he currently shares the record with Guillermo Vilas).
