Rafa on playing Kyrgios:
He’s a very difficult opponent. He’s one of the most difficult players you can play. It’s true that I think on clay he’s a very, very tough player… I have to play really well to be able to beat him. I think I’m ready to do that. We’ll see what happens tomorrow. I don’t know what’s going to happen.
Kyrgios beat Rafa at 2014 Wimbledon, but our champ got the better of Australian over three sets at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in May 2016.
Rafa is 30-5 on the season, which includes his 10th title at both the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters and the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell. He has won a record 51 clay-court crowns overall.
GOOD LUCK & VAMOS RAFA!
