Rafa on playing Diego:
He’s No 12 in the world. It’s a match against one of the best players of the world today, so you expect a very tough match and you need to be ready to accept that it’s going to be a tough match and fight for it. I know what I have to do, but it’s tough to make that happen, because he’s so good.
Good luck and Vamos Rafa!
